Learn about Rehabilitation Centers

Rehabilitation centers provide specialized therapies to individuals of all ages, on an inpatient or outpatient basis. The goal of a rehabilitation center is to help individuals reach their highest level of functioning in daily life.

What is a rehabilitation center?

Rehabilitation centers offer many different services, including physical, speech, and occupational therapies. Many attendees have disabilities or ongoing medical problems, while others are recovering from an accident or a medical incident such as a stroke. Rehabilitation centers are often affiliated with another health care organization, such as a hospital or nursing home, although they can be separate, freestanding facilities.

A physician, nurse, or case manager specifies rehabilitation as part of a patient's care plan and works together with physical therapists, occupational therapists, recreational therapists, speech therapists, audiologists, social workers, and psychiatric nurses as required to ensure that the patient's needs are met.

What should I look for in a rehabilitation center?

Outpatient rehabilitation centers often consist of a group of therapists offering a range of services. This structure enables therapists to more easily coordinate treatment plans with one another and with other medical providers. Rehabilitation is generally a slow and difficult process, but patients in rehab together are likely to build friendships and encourage one another. Choose a rehabilitation facility that provides the treatments you need in an environment that makes you feel comfortable. Be sure to check that the facility is accredited and staff are licensed.

How do I pay for a rehabilitation services?

Rehabilitation services are often covered by an individual's health insurance or through Medicare, if the person is eligible.
