Through hard work and dedication, clients of Rush University Medical Center's Adult Day Rehabilitation Program earn the rewards of intensive therapy while living at home and participating in their communities. The neurological-based program is designed for those who are functionally impaired yet are medically stable and can handle multiple therapy sessions averaging three hours, two or three days per week.
The average length of stay in the day rehab program is six to eight weeks. The frequency of visits and length of stay are based on the individual strengths, goals and needs of each person. A plan of care is developed by the client, caregiver(s) and therapists at the initial evaluation appointment and assessed throughout the therapy sessions.
As many of our clients will tell you, the journey toward recovery can be challenging. Our clients invest more than just time in rehabilitation: they invest their energy; they invest their hopes and aspirations; they invest themselves. That's why our team is so passionate about providing the highest quality of care. And that's why our clients, and their unique sets of goals, play the central role in every care plan.
