Acute Rehabilitation

The emphasis at a post-acute care facility is on rehabilitation and symptom management. At this stage of recovery, while there may be some level of medical care required, it’s likely to be moderate, focusing on recuperation and rehabilitation, with the goal of providing your child with the highest optimal level of independence.
