After hospitalization for surgery, illness, or injury, you may need rehabilitation services in an inpatient or home setting. Treatment can help you regain or improve abilities (physical, mental, cognitive) needed for daily living. Rehabilitation can help improve your overall functioning and quality of life.
Next Step in Care has a Family Caregiver Guide to help families navigate Short-Term Rehab Services in an Inpatient Setting. If your family member is in the hospital for an acute illness, surgery, or an injury, they may need rehabilitation services.
