  • OUR CARE SETTINGS

    RehabCare offers career opportunities and student clinical fellowship placements in virtually every care setting:

    • Skilled Nursing Facilities (SNFs) - Patients in SNFs and assisted living environments receive goal-oriented, individualized therapy for diagnoses including general debility, post-orthopedic surgery, stroke, chronic pain and wound care. Goals may include helping residents improve strength, mobility, feeding abilities and speech, and return to daily tasks of living with minimal discomfort and maximum productivity.

    • Long-Term Acute Care Hospitals (LTACHs) - LTACHs are specialty care hospitals designed for patients that require an acute hospital stay beyond the typical four- to seven-day length of stay to address chronic medical conditions. The patients' medical needs result in no to low tolerance of functional therapeutic activities. On average, patients require a 25-day stay to progress to an IRF or skilled nursing setting.

    • Inpatient Rehabilitation Facilities (IRFs) - IRFs are designed for patients who are able to tolerate an intensive regimen of therapies or require 24-hour rehabilitation nursing care, and who will likely return home or to a home-like setting after discharge. Patients can be referred from any level of care and commonly include those with stroke, brain injury, multiple trauma, amputation, spinal cord injury, orthopedic conditions and degenerative neurological disorders, such as Parkinson's or Multiple Sclerosis.

    • Outpatient Rehabilitation - Outpatient rehabilitation offers therapy programs for patients with physical limitations who can travel one to three times per week to receive care. These programs specialize in services for sports injuries, comprehensive occupational medicine, neurological disorders, wound care, hand and spine injuries, and post-surgical conditions.

    • Medical/Surgical Units - Many patients in a variety of medical/surgical units can benefit from a primary care and interdisciplinary rehabilitation model. Some of our hospital clients utilize a team of RehabCare physical, occupational and speech/language therapists to provide services within their medical/surgical units.

    • Home Health Rehabilitation - Home Health is for home-bound patients who require assistive devices or assistance at home. Patients can receive support services such as physical, occupational and speech therapies, instruction in disease management, self-medication, injury prevention and wound care one to three times per week.

    In short, we have the professional and educational setting you’re looking for. Over its 30-year history, RehabCare’s name has become synonymous with quality rehabilitative care.
