Rehabilitation Care


Bruyère is the region’s largest single-site academic provider of inpatient rehabilitation.

Rehabilitation is a progressive, dynamic, goal-oriented and time-limited process, which enables an individual with impairment to identify and reach their optimal mental, physical, cognitive and social functional level.

Rehabilitation at Bruyère

Rehabilitation services at Bruyère cover a spectrum of inpatient and outpatient services in two areas: Care of the Elderly and Physical Medicine & Rehabilitation.

Assessment and rehabilitation services serve patients who have had a recent decline in their ability to manage everyday activities. The programs’ main goal is to improve the patient’s daily functional abilities through assessment and treatment of physical, cognitive, medical and social issues. Services are available in both official languages.
