Robin Trust’s Sub-acute and Rehab Unit

Robin Trust’s sub-acute facility is nestled at the foot of the majestic Table Mountain in the tranquil Oude Molen Eco Village in Pinelands. Our sub-acute facility is managed by a multi-disciplinary team of professionals prioritising each client’s medical rehabilitation and recuperation.

Our facility and approach

Our 18-bedded unit comprises of 2 private rooms with en-suite bathrooms and 4 four-bedded rooms. Located minutes from Cape Town, the tranquil, farm-like surrounds provide the ideal environment to rest, recuperate and get back on your feet. Our new larger physio room overlooks the garden, providing the ideal space to receive treatment in a relaxed and calm environment.

We provide 24-hour, individualised, holistic care with a multi-disciplinary team approach.  Each client is assessed, and an individualised care package is created to ensure optimal recovery.

Our team comprise of a Medical Doctor, Occupational Therapist, Physiotherapist, Psychologist, Dietician and Social Worker who meet once a week and collaborate to create and implement the best care plan for each client for optimal recovery.

Clients usually stay between five to ten days, but their stay can be extended by the team of medical professionals if needed.

Admission Process

We have a 4-step process to admit clients into our sub-acute facility:

  • Robin Trust will send a registered nurse to the patient’s hospital bed to assess their needs.
  • On admission, the length of stay is determined with the physiotherapist, medical doctor and relevant medical aid.
  • A tailor-made care package is designed for each client with reference to the multi-disciplinary team.
