WakeMed Rehab and How it Benefits You
As a patient in the WakeMed 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.
Your daily schedule will include a minimum of three hours of physical, occupational, nursing and speech therapy. You may also be involved in neuropsychology, therapeutic recreation, community reentry activities, counseling and education programs. Staff may coordinate community outings such as shopping, visiting a park, swimming or bowling.
On-Site Therapy Programs
Your therapies will occur on-site in the WakeMed Rehab Hospital. We offer 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.
Most of our rooms are semi-private, so you will more than likely have a roommate. 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, and you will receive a daily therapy schedule to carry with you to your treatment sessions. The nursing staff and therapists will help you, as needed, to attend scheduled appointments.
