Our Team consists of:
- Rehabilitation Physicians
- Occupational Therapists
- Social Worker
- Speech Pathologist
We are also able to access other allied health, nursing, medical and surgical services available at St Vincent's.
We help adults manage their own healthcare, through:
- Specialist medical and allied health assessment and support
- Referral to other specialist services, within and external to St Vincent’s
- Goal-directed therapy
- Equipment assessment and advice, including wheelchairs, orthotics and home modifications
- Establishing links to GPs and local therapists
The primary goal of the service is to link individuals with local health services.
The service is based at St. Vincent’s Hospital, Fitzroy, with additional clinics operating regularly at St. George’s Hospital in Kew.
Clinic appointments at Fitzroy are held on the ground floor of the Bolte Wing (Building F). At St George’s, the clinic appointments are held in the Community Rehabilitation Centre, ground floor (up one level from the underneath parking).
When you arrive please report to the reception desk. The reception staff will notify the appropriate YACDS staff member that you have arrived and provide you with further direction as required.
Parking near the Building F - Bolte Wing can unfortunately be difficult at times.
A patient drop-off area is available in front of the Nicholson Street entrance to the Bolte Wing and to the rear of the Bolte Wing via the boom-gated driveway.
For further information please feel welcome to contact the service or follow the links to the St Vincent's maps and parking and transport pages.
