Is Inpatient Rehabilitation the Best Choice for You?
- You and your doctor should consider these questions when choosing a rehabilitation option:
- Is the patient medically stable? Can the patient participate in three hours of therapy per day?
- Will a family member or caregiver be involved in the patient’s care?
- Is the patient’s condition expected to improve with intervention?
- Does the patient plan to return home or to a community setting, adult foster care or assisted living following initial rehabilitation care?
- Will insurance cover all or part of the cost?
If you answered “yes” to all or most of these questions, inpatient rehabilitation may be your best option. Read on to learn about the outstanding care available at the Inpatient Rehabilitation at MidMichigan Medical Center - Alpena and the RehabCentre at MidMichigan Medical Center - Gratiot.
If you answered “no” to many of the questions above, you may want to consider outpatient therapy or in-home therapy for your rehabilitation needs.
