Why Choose Kettering Health for Inpatient Rehab?
Our program provides comprehensive care and supportive recovery services. We offer the following:
- Diverse expert teams: Physical therapists, occupational therapists, speech therapists, rehab physicians (physiatrists), and rehab specialty nurses collaborate to give you treatment that gets you home sooner.
- Integrated therapy: Most patients receive three hours of physical and occupational therapy six days per week. Speech therapy is also included for patients who have language, cognition, or swallowing issues.
- Individualized treatment plan: We recognize that every patient’s situation is unique and work to meet your goals.
- Section GG Quality Indicators: We measure your functional recovery using a 6-point scale that assess your mobility and ability to perform activities of daily living.
- Home-assessment services: In certain cases, we complete home visits to ensure your safe return from hospital to home. We look at things that might be an obstacle (stairs, wheelchair access, etc.) and find solutions.
- Caregiver education and training: The support of others is essential to bring you back to health. Your caregivers will receive training to learn how to help with your recovery.
- Post-hospitalization care: We provide recommendations for outpatient therapy or in-home care for continued rehabilitation.
