Rehab programs


At Hedla we offer intensive and individually designed neurological rehabilitation programs, with goal-oriented and specific training in an enriched environment.


Goal-oriented teamwork with the participant in focus

Hedlas team, consisting of well-trained and committed physiotherapists, speech language pathologists and neurologists all work closely with the participant and significant others to optimise the rehabilitation. Prior to each program, the participant meets with our team for a thorough evaluation of health conditions, symptoms and individual abilities. Together with the team, the participant sets relevant and measurable goals for the period and a rehabilitation plan is then carefully designed.

Intensive and individualised training

The individualised training take place 3 or 5 hours per day in order to reach a sufficiently large training dose and intensity to be able to achieve the participant's goals. The training is continuously evaluated during the program and is updated and adjusted depending on individual conditions and progress achieved. At the end of the rehabilitation period, the participant receives recommendations for continued training and the option of follow-ups and training at home.

Enriched environment

Research show that an enriched environment has a very positive impact on the brain and its ability to recover from neurological injury or illness. The concept of an enriched environment is defined, in research contexts, as a combination of three main components: physical activity, intellectual stimulation and social interaction.

The site of Hedla's facilities in Almuñécar has been carefully selected to offer a truly enriched environment with sea views and lush gardens. Both indoor and outdoor areas specially designed for neurological rehabilitation, socialising and exchanging experiences with people in a similar situation. Our facilities, as well as the surroundings with adjacent parks, mountains and beaches enable training in varied terrain and offer lifelike physical and cognitive challenges at all levels. The good climate in Almuñécar also plays an important role, as it allows for outdoor training almost every day of the year.


Educational activities for particpants and significant others

During the rehab period, we offer recurring lectures and workshops. We place great focus on both practical and theoretical education with our participants and their significant others, especially in the following areas:

  • The brain's function and its ability to develop and reorganise itself
  • Evidence-based rehabilitation for different neurological diagnoses and symptoms
  • How to make the greatest possible progress, according to current research
  • Effective and safe training at home
  • How relatives and personal assistants can support at home, in a safe and effective way
  • Motivational factors
  • How to set smart goals

Programs during autumn 2021

Our programs run almost as usual during the autumn, but with some extra precautions in place due to the pandemic. We follow the recommendations of Spanish and other European authorities and actively monitor changes regarding restrictions and infection spreading. We have also updated our booking conditions, making them even more flexible.
