3. What can patients expect to achieve in rehabilitation?

The level of achievement through rehabilitation depends on the type and severity of the issue a patient has. We encourage patients to set realistic rehabilitation goals realizing that goals often include adjusting to, and living, with disability. Rehabilitation is a process that is not complete but continues after a patient is discharged. Patients will continue to work on their goals and make improvements as outpatients or on their own at home.
