How it works
Cognitive Rehabilitations Therapy (CRT) is the process of re-learning thinking skills that may have been lost or altered, as a result of damage to the brain cells. If these skills cannot be re-learned, then new ones must be taught to enable you to compensate for their lost functions. That’s where cognitive rehabilitations comes in.
The neuropsychological and medical professionals who make up our team have been hand-picked, not only for their expertise, but for their passion for helping people just like you successfully complete this post-injury journey back to full health.
Improve Independence & Confidence
Following a brain injury, you may experience a number of cognitive difficulties, leading to difficulties in your relationships and daily life. We’ll assist you to reclaim independence, autonomy and confidence, helping you to enjoy increased self-reliance as the symptoms of your injury fade.
Following your in-person sessions, you’ll leave us equipped with an array of take-home exercises, along with high-level training, helpful resources, relevant information, and in some cases, adaptive equipment to help you manage your injury over the long term.
CRT offered by Jurmaine Health, is fundamentally a goal-oriented program, designed from the ground up to help you improve various cognitive functions including memory, attention and concentration, along with simpler, daily living skills.

If you can’t make it to any of our 4 sites in Preston, Melbourne CBD, Dandenong and Ballarat, we also provide off-site assessments – where we can visit you at your home or office. Usually, there is no charge involved if the site is within 100km of Melbourne CBD.
Does Medicare cover your services? Can I claim your services on my private health cover?
Unfortunately, Neuropsychology Assessments are still considered a specialist service, and are not covered by Medicare or Private Health. However, it may be possible to claim Psychological and Cognitive Rehabilitation as well as Counselling/Therapy with Private Health Insurance, depending on your cover.
