When you are injured or ill, you may need rehabilitation services to help reach your fullest recovery potential. Rehabilitation helps to improve your body’s functions, and there are variety of different care settings available depending on your medical condition. Our Inpatient Rehabilitation Hospitals (also known as IRFs) are for patients who need a higher level of care and more intense occupational, physical and speech therapy.

Patients at a Kindred inpatient rehabilitation hospital are medically stable, but also need 24-hour nursing care and daily physician oversight. They are able to perform at least three hours of therapy a day, five days a week. The goal of inpatient rehabilitation is to restore function as fully as possible, and when necessary help patients learn how to do things differently when functions can’t be restored to previous levels.

When Do You Need an Inpatient Rehabilitation Hospital?

Kindred Inpatient Rehabilitation Hospitals offer the following services:

Brain Injury Rehabilitation

Our program provides therapists certified in the Neuro-IFRAH (Integrative Functional Rehabilitation and Habilitation) approach. Neuro-IFRAH is a personalized treatment plan for each patient and consists of ongoing care with the goal of preparing patients to return home independently or with assistance from family members or other care providers. We help people restore functions so they can maximize their independence and adapt to the changes caused by brain injury.

Lower Extremity Amputation Rehabilitation

We focus on helping patients improve overall mobility, health and independence. Our program includes caring for the residual limb and using the prosthesis. We also help patients assess any environmental changes that will need to be made at work or home.

Spinal Cord Injury Rehabilitation

In this program, we teach patients how to adapt to and manage the activities of daily living, including eating, bathing and dressing. Our goal is to help patients improve their health, adapt to the changes to their bodies and adjust to living in their home and community.

Stroke Recovery

Our program helps improve communication through speaking and writing, and focuses on managing basic daily activities such as bathing and eating. We work with patients to increase balance and coordination, as well as improve memory and judgment.

Outpatient Services

For those patients who are well enough to be discharged from the hospital but still need rehabilitation services, we offer outpatient services for a wide variety of musculoskeletal injuries and disorders, as well as for general rehabilitation. The benefits of outpatient services include increased strength and mobility, improved balance and decreased pain.
