Doncaster Rehabilitation Services –
Commonwealth Home Support Programme
Allied Health & Therapy Service:
Doncaster Rehabilitation Services (DRS) provides allied health and therapy services that assist older people to regain or maintain physical, functional and cognitive abilities, thereby facilitating them to remain living in the community.
Services include podiatry, occupational therapy, physiotherapy, allied health and therapy services.
MannaCare provides individual and group sessions in our well-equipped facility, located in Cassia House. Services are offered on a short-term basis and are delivered under the guidance of Allied Health Professionals.
A fee applies for all services.
DRS clients must be referred by a hospital, their doctor or other health professional. A DRS therapist does a comprehensive assessment and devises a goal-focused treatment plan, which is reviewed regularly. Ask your doctor to refer you using the referral form.
Doncaster Rehabilitation Service is governed by the Commonwealth Home Support Programme Guidelines.
