Inpatient Rehabilitation FAQ
As you make decisions about inpatient rehabilitation therapy, it’s important to consider your options.
Finding the right rehab therapy team and knowing what to look for can help you get back to where you want to be, home.
What is inpatient rehabilitation?
Inpatient rehabilitation – sometimes known as rehabilitation therapy, subacute or transitional care – is care you receive following a hospitalization.
Inpatient rehabilitation usually focuses on speech, physical and occupational therapies. The goal of post-hospital therapies is to help you regain lost function or learn compensation tactics specific to your needs so you can return to everyday life as safely as possible.
Where can I get inpatient rehabilitation services?
If you have Medicare coverage, there are some designations for where inpatient rehab can take place. Nursing homes, rehabilitation centers and long-term care hospitals can offer this care, as can home health agencies.
Inpatient rehab is available to people of all ages in various settings. Be sure to check with your insurance and Medicare policies about coverage for your post-hospital care.

Your doctor may have some recommendations, but don’t be afraid to research on your own, or ask to go to a different location. No matter where you choose to go, you should feel in control of the process.
Can my therapy program be customized?
A good inpatient rehab team will make sure your therapy program matches your needs, and talk you through the reasons for each exercise. If you have specific tasks you want to be able to do again, or if you’re hesitant about a particular exercise, let your therapists know. Your wants, needs and fears should be acknowledged and respected.
What should I look for in a therapy team?
Finding the right therapists to help you is just as important as where you go for therapy. Choose an inpatient rehab team that is patient and compassionate, but also pushes you to reach your goals. A good therapy team will encourage you, listen to your frustrations and cheer your successes every step of the way.
