Intensive functional rehabilitation

Intensive functional rehabilitation (IFR) is for those with an orthopedic or neurological problem such as a fracture, a joint prothesis or a stroke and who require intensive physiotherapy, occupational therapy and/or speech therapy.

How does rehabilitation work?

Professionals work with the client and their family so that they attain an optimal level of recovery specific to their situation.

Am I eligible for this type of rehabilitation?

See the eligibility criteria for access to intensive functional rehabilitation.

Anyone who: 

  •  Is an adult who has significant functional disabilities (stroke, simple or complicated fracture, muscle and joint problems, orthopedic traumas caused by falls, neurological disorders liable to improve, amputation);
  • Is beyond the acute phase of the disease;
  • Has an identified potential for improvement and recovery;
