Who is this service for?

Henderson Rehabilitation Unit is an inpatient rehabilitation service on the top floor of The Grace Care Centre in Thornbury. This service is for adults over the age of 18.

What we do

People in our care receive rehabilitation and recovery at Henderson Unit when they can’t be safely discharged home following a hospital stay. This may include support to relearn activities of daily living such as cooking meals and washing.  They will be supported by a multidisciplinary team of clinicians with different specialties.

The Unit provides care which cannot be given in someone’s usual residence. However as soon care can continue at home, we will ensure they are supported to do so.

How do I access this service?

A formal referral from a hospital professional is required to discharge from hospital into a community bed at the Unit.

I’m a clinician – how do I make a referral to this service?

A referral will be completed at the hospital and will be managed by the Transfer of Care Hub for a ‘step down’ or ‘Pathway 2’ bed at the Unit.

Visiting the unit

Visiting times on the Unit are 11am to 7pm, but we ask that you avoid visiting at mealtimes, as our units participate in the national protected mealtimes initiative. If visiting at meal times, you will be asked to leave so that the people in our care can eat without being interrupted.

Please contact the Unit to discuss visiting arrangements in more detail.

Visiting for people under the age of 18 will be at the discretion of the Unit Lead or the nurse in charge. These visits, if agreed, will need to be prebooked with the team.
