Individuals who qualify for intensive inpatient rehabilitation must:
have the potential to improve functional abilities
be deemed medically stable
have the ability, tolerance and motivation to participate in the required 3 hours of therapeutic services at least 6 days per week.
require 2 of the 3 therapies provided: Physical, Occupational, and/or Speech.
have an identified discharge plan to return to home, a family or friend's home, or assisting living facility.
For patients living at home who want to be admitted, two therapy evaluations must be completed for pre-admission screening (PT, OT, and/or ST) which can be done via home health or outpatient therapy services.
The following patient types cannot be accepted at The Rehabilitation Center:
Ventilator dependent patients
Patients who are younger than 16 years of age
Patients who have a discharge plan to a skilled nursing facility
insurance benefits will be verified for inpatient rehabilitation coverage
the patient will be informed of insurance benefit provisions and limitations prior to admission
If the insurer does not provide coverage for inpatient rehabilitation, counselling will be provided about alternative funding sources available and other rehabilitation program options that are covered by the insurer
If prior authorization is required, it will be obtained by The Rehabilitation Center prior to admission.
The first few days at The Rehabilitation Center include multiple evaluations from which a personal plan will be designed. You and your family will be asked to help develop this plan so that we share the same goals.
