Does the facility specialize in rehabilitation?
What percentage of patients are sent home after receiving care? How many transition to longterm care or nursing home care? Is that available at the same rehab facility?
What are the staff’s qualifications?
Is there a “continuum of care?”
Is the facility experienced in treating your parent’s condition?
What is the average length of stay?
How many hours of therapy a day will there be?
What should your parent bring?
How can family members get involved?
Are family conferences offered to keep family members informed of the patient’s progress? What are visiting hours, and how long can family members stay? Can they eat with their loved ones?
