Molly home for rehabilitation

IAN "Molly" Meldrum has been released from hospital, returning to his Richmond home to continue his rehabilitation.

Meldrum's manager, Mark Klemens, said the music legend would undertake a "vigorous" rehabilitation program as an outpatient of the Epworth Hospital in nearby Bridge Road.

Meldrum was rushed to The Alfred hospital in December after a fall from the roof of a gazebo in the backyard of his Highett Street home, in which he sustained a broken shoulder, fractures to the skull, ribs and vertebrae, and swelling to the brain and a punctured lung. Meldrum has since been receiving treatment in the Epworth rehabilitation centre.

"Molly Meldrum is continuing with his rehabilitation," Mr Klemens said in a statement yesterday.

"He has returned home to see how he goes with a vigorous rehabilitation program in place both at home and at the Epworth.

"He needs to take things slowly and in time will be in a position to talk ... He continues to be humbled by all the support he has been receiving from the public."
