• About Your Rehab Team

  • The Medical Director is a physician specially trained in rehabilitation who will coordinate your overall treatment program and oversee the efforts of the rehab team.

    The Rehabilitation Nurses will give you around-the-clock personal care and are a good resource for any questions you or your family may have about your recovery.

    Physical Therapists will focus on improving your mobility, in addition to your strength and balance. If necessary, they also will instruct on safe and correct use of mobility devices such as walkers and canes, braces and artificial limbs.

    Occupational Therapists focus on improving your everyday living skills, including bathing, dressing and eating. They also may train you on equipment that will help you better perform these activities.

    Speech-Language Therapists will assess and treat your ability to communicate, problem solve and reason. They also may address problems with swallowing.

    Your Case Manager will explain the different details of your stay, explore with you the many changes in your life and coordinate your discharge.

    Other individuals on your rehabilitation team may include a dietitian, psychologist, and others. Your personal physician may continue to follow your progress and remain in charge of your medical care.
