Opened The adult unit relocated from the Argyle Clinic in Braamfontein, Johannesburg where it operated from July 1999, to Life New Kensington Clinic in December 2000. The dedicated paediatric rehabilitation unit opened at the beginning of 2010, and accommodates children with all types of neurological impairments who require intensive interdisciplinary therapy.
Capacity 42 adult beds and 10 paediatric beds
Location The rehabilitation unit at Life New Kensington Clinic is situated in the quiet suburb of Kensington in eastern Johannesburg. The unit is housed in a beautiful stately national monument building, with a rich legacy and timeless elegance. The building is complemented by a quiet therapeutic outside area surrounded by leafy old trees. Its ideal location ensures easy access to public transport.
Facilities The rehabilitation unit houses dedicated adult and paediatric facilities, with large, spacious gyms and large exterior therapy areas. A recent refurbishment project has provided for two independent living units, as well as a purpose built exterior wheelchair mobility training area.

Child friendly facilities, therapists trained in paediatric rehabilitation and the child-centered, outcomes- driven rehabilitation programme are key elements of the paediatric rehabilitation service.

The unit prides itself in a unique treatment offering as the rehabilitation and medical teams are also complemented by two Golden Retrievers, which work as therapy dogs.
