What is Rehabilitation Care?
Rehabilitation care is a type of temporary specialized care to help you regain as much of your strength, mobility and function as possible after suffering from an injury, illness, or other life-altering event such as a stroke.
Rehabilitation care can be provided in several different types of settings including nursing homes, assisted living, hospitals and sometimes even in your home. There are also free-standing inpatient rehabilitation centers that are dedicated specifically to providing rehabilitation care to seniors.
Inpatient rehabilitation centers, whether they are free-standing or located in a hospital or other long-term care facility, are typically well equipped and staffed to provide numerous types of therapies. These include, but are not limited to, physical, speech-language and occupational therapy.
