Acute Rehab

If the patient is at a stage in his recovery where he is able to tolerate three hours of therapy per day and has shown recent progress, he participates in an acute rehabilitation regime developed to take into account his unique, specialized needs. In general it includes:

  • Behavioral programming
  • Medication trials
  • Individual psychotherapy
  • Group psychotherapy
  • Rehabilitation nursing services
  • Medical services
  • Nutritional therapy
  • Individual rehabilitation therapies (at least 2)
    • Occupational
    • Physical
    • Speech
    • Cognitive rehabilitation
  • Interdisciplinary comprehensive programs
  • Case management services
  • Patient/family education
  • Social work/family therapy
  • Neuropsychiatric services
  • School
  • Recreational services

If functional gains are not achieved over a reasonable period, Cumberland’s staff consults with the referring professional to discuss if a less-intensive level-of-care would be more beneficial for the patient. The interdisciplinary team determines appropriate services and discharge options in accordance with licensing requirements and approved standards of accrediting entities.
