Sub-Acute Care Programs

Sub-acute Care

Sub-Acute Care occurs in a hospital environment, outside of an Acute Hospital, and acts as a transition facility to prepare patients to reintegrate back into their home environments. Stable patients who are ready to be discharged from an Acute Hospital, but still need medical and physical rehabilitation intervention, are referred to Spescare. We offer individualised patient goal-orientated, comprehensive, coordinated multidisciplinary care programs for inpatients.

Any patient who may have had a stroke, suffered a head injury, was involved in a car accident or traumatic event, had hip/knee or orthopaedic surgery, spinal, brain or any general surgery, or patients who are medically ill, on intravenous fluids or medications, weak or just not mobilising well on their own, can be admitted to our facility for continuation of care.

Advanced Wound Care

Our advanced wound care program is designed for patients who are discharged from acute hospitals with wounds or ulcers that have not completely healed.

Intravenous Infusion Support
