Outpatient rehabilitation is an available service for clients who want to remain as independent as possible by living at home, yet seek to strengthen and regain ability in their daily lives. This type of therapy is offered in a variety of settings such as outpatient clinics or the client’s home, as well as participating adult day health programs. Clients receiving this type of care can also receive physical, occupational or speech therapy, based on their personal needs and goals. Wellness programs are also commonly offered.
How to Choose an Outpatient Rehabilitation Program
When a client is in need of outpatient rehabilitation services, they should first identify their personal health and independence goals. They should then decide which setting would be most appropriate and beneficial in meeting those goals, whether it is the high-quality equipment and resources at a direct outpatient clinic, or more personalized therapy in the comfort of their own home, or if it is coordinating services at their adult day health program. The client should also consider transportation needs, how often appointments are needed, and what works best for their daily schedule. It is helpful to call a variety of outpatient providers, explain the client’s specific goals and needs for therapy services, and request additional information in order to make an educated decision. Many outpatient clinics provide extensive information online.
