Rehabilitation Advice Line
A new Rehabilitation Advice Line, 1-833-379-0563, is now available for Albertans over the age of 18, who:
*Have existing disabilities related to neurological conditions (e.g.: Parkinson’s, spinal cord injury, Multiple Sclerosis, brain injury, stroke)
*Have existing health conditions that affect muscles, bones, and joints – including those awaiting or recovering from surgery
*Are recovering from COVID-19
Vulnerable Albertans living with disabilities in the community can have additional challenges accessing community supports during the COVID-19 pandemic. Our focus is on ensuring Albertans continue to get the care and support they need during the COVID-19 pandemic. The Rehabilitation Advice Line gives callers information about:
*Activities and exercises that help with physical concerns
*Strategies to manage the day-to-day activities affected by these concerns
*Rehabilitation services that are open for in-person and/or virtual visits
The Alberta-only Rehabilitation Advice line will be answered by allied health clinicians and will operate every day from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Calls outside this time will be redirected to Health Link (811).
The Rehabilitation Advice line is a collaborative effort by Allied Health Professional Practice and Education, Allied Health Zone Operations, the Neurosciences, Rehabilitation & Vision Strategic Clinical Network (SCN), the Bone and Joint SCN, and Health Link.
