One of the main goals of rehabilitation is to prepare the patient for life after discharge. This includes the following:
Adapting to living with a disability
Planning for a safe and accessible environment
Community re-entry plans are individualized and are based on the patient's physical abilities and needs. Both the patient and family should be involved in planning re-entry into the community.
Many times, adjustments, a transitional period, and modifications need to be made to help a person with a disability function independently. This may involve, but is not limited to, the following:
Home. Installing wheelchair ramps, raised toilet seats, or handrails on stairways
School. Special computers or adaptive equipment to allow for alternative means of communication, examinations, and training materials
Work. New job skills, transitional work, job placement, and vocational counseling
Recreational, social, or sports activities. Mobility in public places, such as restaurants, churches, or stadiums
Transportation. Getting in and out of a car or bus, or installing special hand controls or lifts
Communications. Providing qualified readers and interpreters
Rehabilitation team members and community agencies often work together to help people with disabilities succeed.
