Community mobility group at Epworth Richmond

banner-community-mobility.jpg

The community mobility group is a new group to commence at Epworth Richmond. This group is for Epworth patients who have a neurological condition, who can walk without assistance, but who have difficulty walking outdoors.


The aims of the community mobility group are for participants to be able to improve their balance, endurance and speed of walking and increase their confidence in walking outdoors. This will ultimately provide them with the skills to independently access their own local community environment.


The group runs on a Tuesday, leaving from Elim House on Erin St. Group participation can be funded by private health as part of the rehabilitation program.


To refer a patient to the group, please fax referral to 03 9982 6696 or rehab@epworth.org.au. For all enquiries, contact Megan Hamilton on 0408 032 581.
