May 19, 2020

Allied health clinicians offer rehabilitation information, help callers access services

CALGARY — Alberta Health Services has launched a Rehabilitation Advice Line for Albertans over the age of 18 living with disabilities in the community.

The Alberta-only service — available by calling toll-free 1-833-379-0563 — connects callers to allied health clinicians who can help them access services close to where they live and provide 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 that can support them.

The service is available seven days a week from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m.

Alberta Health Services is the provincial health authority responsible for planning and delivering health supports and services for more than four million adults and children living in Alberta. Its mission is to provide a patient-focused, quality health system that is accessible and sustainable for all Albertans.
