Foxglove ward at King George Hospital provides care to patients over the age of 18 with intermediate care rehabilitation needs.
Patients benefit from individualised care and a range of rehabilitative services. The ward works with patients to build endurance, stamina, strength to foster independence and to increase mobility. The ward also facilitates early discharge from hospital and prevents unnecessary admission to acute hospitals.
Patients receive treatment from a multi-disciplinary team under the direction of consultant geriatrician. The team consists of nurses, physiotherapists, occupational therapists, dieticians and social workers. The families/carers of patients are encouraged to participate in the rehabilitation process.
