WakeMed Rehab and How it Benefits You
As a patient in the rehab hospital, you will share in designing a recovery program to help you return to as normal a life as possible. You and your interdisciplinary team will plan activities and treatments that will best help you during your recovery period.
You will participate in a daily schedule of therapy consisting of a minimum of three hours of physical, occupational, nursing, and speech therapy services. You may also be involved in neuropsychology, therapeutic recreation, community reentry activities, counseling and education programs. The staff may coordinate community outings that may include shopping, visiting a park, swimming or bowling.
Your therapies are all offered on-site in the WakeMed Rehab Hospital. We have comprehensive rehabilitation gyms where you will go for occupational and physical therapies. Our speech and language therapy program will help you with any speech, language, cognitive, eating/swallowing, or facial movement problems you may have.
Most of our rooms are semi-private, so you will more than likely have a roommate and you will be invited to eat with other rehab patients in one of our dining rooms. Your therapy program will begin on the day after admission. You will get a daily therapy schedule to carry with you to your treatment sessions. The nursing staff and therapists will help you as needed to scheduled appointments.
