Going home for leave is an important part of your rehabilitation. It enables you to practice your achievements in your home and identify any issues you may have so we can readjust your goals and therapies accordingly. It also allows you to spend quality time with your family and friends.

Feedback following leave is also vitally important so please let the staff know how your time at home was and complete any paperwork required.

Leave is usually planned so that it does not interfere with your therapy. The best times are from 5pm Friday to Sunday evening.

Please check with the staff if you are eligible for leave and the length of time appropriate for you. This will often depend on the treatment you need, education required prior to leave or access to your home.


Our State Rehabilitation Service patient information booklet contains information available on the Your hospital stay and Rehabilitation patients pages on our website.  It is also available in each patient room.
