|RMC's rehabcentreŽ, an inpatient rehabilitation unit, is designed to help physically disabled and injured people regain their independence and return to productive lives.|
The rehabcentreŽ offers the most intensive level of therapy of any post-acute setting, and the goal is to return each patient to the highest level of function and independence as soon as possible. More than 80 percent of our patients return home after an average stay of 12 days, which exceeds national average.
Patients receive three hours of therapy daily, which can consist of a combination of physical, occupational and speech therapies.
The rehabcentreŽ team includes:
A Medical Director with more than 20 years of experience in internal medicine and six years in rehabilitation
Experienced rehabilitation nurses providing 24-hour care
Physical, occupational and speech therapists
Case Manager and Social Worker
In addition to private and semi-private rooms, the facility features a dining room, gymnasium, kitchen and a small apartment, all designed to allow patients to practice activities of daily living and improve their functional skills.
Individuals who benefit from the rehabcentreŽ include those who, as a result of injury or illness, are experiencing:
Balance and coordination problems
Difficulty moving in bed or from one place to another
Difficulty performing daily living activities such as eating, grooming, dressing, bathing and homemaking
Memory and judgment difficulties, speech or language problems or physical limitations
