When is outpatient rehab needed?January 19, 2019
As directed by a physician, outpatient rehab is useful when injury, surgery, accident or illness has compromised functional abilities, and when overall physical health presents no need for residential care. By following a regimen of individually focused treatment, adult and senior patients can improve endurance and build confidence while rehabilitating their functional skills.
A good candidate for outpatient rehab is:
- Medically stable after a medical event such as a stroke, hip or other fracture, or an injury related to a fall or illness
- Able to live in own residence without risk of complications
- Mobile and ambulatory
- Needing to relearn skills, such as speaking — or learn new skills, such as walking with a brace
