Developments and Projects

Adult Physical Rehabilitation:

  • As Good Shepherd Hospital is an acute hospital, it offers intensive in-patient treatment, while outpatient treatment focuses on function and teaching caregivers coping mechanisms.

Paedriatic Sub-section:

  • A large part of the work done here involves treatment of developmental delay due to malnutrition, birth complications, medical conditions, chronic tracheotomies and neglect in abandoned babies. Various stimulation programmes, and group sessions, are offered to help the children to catch up.
  • Other conditions treated include Burns, Oncology, Neurology, Head injuries and Cerebral Palsy.

Psychiatry Sub-section:

  • All patients are assisted to develop and maintain function at their own highest level. Because patients are not kept in the hospital for long periods, assessment of the patient's functional level is very important. The assessment and observation by occupational therapy are essential for the team to reach a final diagnosis.
  • Treatment focuses on personal management, work or school, leisure time, social skills and socio-emotional groups. Other groups are for substance abuse, bipolar patients and their relatives and relapse groups for schizophrenic patients.
