Personal assessment and targeted goals

When you arrive at one of our physical rehabilitation centers, we'll begin with a comprehensive assessment to determine your specific needs. Then we'll work with you, your family and your physician to design a personalized rehabilitation plan.

Our goal is to help you reach the highest level of functioning and independence. In many cases, that will involve specialists from several disciplines, including physical therapy, occupational therapy, and speech- language therapy, and treatment in a variety of settings. If you're an inpatient, your physical rehabilitation program may begin in the hospital and continue on an outpatient basis or through home care.

Every rehabilitation plan is designed around a series of measurable goals that are meaningful to you, and we monitor your progress closely to help you meet them. Education is a central part of the plan in order to give you and your family or caregiver the knowledge and tools to help you reach your goal.
