Rehabilitation Services

Text Size  


HWA operates two rehabilitation centres, one at Whampoa drive and the other at Jurong Point Shopping Centre. We aim to cater to both adults and elderly Singaporeans with physical disabilities, particularly those residing at these locations. In helping our clients to optimise their rehabilitation potential, we hope to better enhance the quality of their lives, and integrate them into mainstream society.

Both centres deploy a fleet of wheelchair-accessible vehicles. These specially adapted vehicles provide ready transportation for our clients with mobility-related disabilities, enabling them and their caregivers to commute to and from our centres for their therapy sessions.

Services offered:

 Our centres provide the following rehabilitation services:- 

  1. 1. Physical rehabilitation programmes for clients to improve and maintain their physical and functional status;
  2. 2. Training on independent living skills, to enable clients to become less dependent on their caregivers;
  3. 3. Training for caregivers on safe handling and proper transfer of clients, and on prevention of complications;
  4. 4. Training on community mobility and exploration;
  5. 5. Consultation and advice on purchase and proper use of assistive devices;
  6. 6. Engagement of clients in social, recreational and community activities;
  7. 7. Wheelchair handling training for volunteers.

HWA has been appointed by the Agency for Integrated Care (AIC) to provide assessment and training service for prescribed mobility devices, for applicants of the Seniors’ Mobility and Enabling Fund (SMF).

 HWA has also signed an agreement with Nanyang Polytechnic’s (NYP) Occupational Therapy School which provides clinical opportunities for its students by means of the “HWA – NYP Teaching Clinic” and “NYP Clinical Placement”.
