When you’re an active member, your rehabilitation assistance is provided by the ADF, however this changes when you’re discharged.
If you are incapacitated or have an impairment from a service injury or illness, you may be eligible for ongoing support from the DVA.
There’s a lot to take care of when you leave the ADF and it’s easy to end up with a delay or even lose some of your current rehabilitation support if you’re not across every detail.
If you plan to leave the ADF, we help you access the specific support services you’re eligible for after your discharge.
As an approved rehabilitation provider we carry out assessments in consultation with your health providers and guide you in claiming ongoing support from the DVA. Rehabilitation activities are split into three main categories and include:
Medical management rehabilitation
Assistance with managing your treatment or medical needs
Individually tailored activities to promote your recovery and help you to learn to manage your new life circumstances. Activities include; pain management, grief and loss or adjustment to disability counselling, and participation in community activities and programs.
Assistance to help you achieve meaningful and sustainable work as a civilian.
If you’re in the ADF speak to your rehabilitation provider about access to services when you leave.
