  • 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  

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
  • Community-based organizations

An Alberta-only line, the Rehabilitation Advice line will be answered by allied health clinicians and will operate from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Calls outside this time will be redirected to Health Link (811).

Update: starting August 1, 2020 the service is available Monday through Friday from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m.

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 Health SCN, and Health Link.
