Recreational therapists provide treatment services and recreation activities for individuals with disabilities or illnesses.
Social workers help patients and their families move through the continuum of care, assuring that you receive the most effective and appropriate level of care. Working with you, your family, your insurance carrier and your health care team, the case manager will help you formulate a discharge plan that is most appropriate for your situation.
Other members of our rehabilitative team may include:
Psychologists are physicians who study the human mind and human behavior to help individuals cope with illnesses or injuries.
Chaplains offer spiritual and emotional care to patients, families and staff, particularly during times of crisis. This care includes a listening presence, encouragement, resources for spiritual and religious needs, as well as assistance in contacting leaders of the patient's own faith community.
Dietitians assess patients’ nutritional needs, develop and implement nutrition programs.
The Center for Rehabilitation at Westlake Hospital is an acute, physical rehabilitation unit offering a wide range of services to meet the needs of patients looking to recover their highest level of function. Our team of experts are dedicated to helping each patient increase their independence, adapt to new challenges, and restore self-determination.
In anticipation of a patient’s return home, our rehabilitation team is involved in the discharge planning process, home assessment and homecare. The recovery process continues beyond discharge, as many patients return to Westlake Hospital for Outpatient Rehabilitation.
Patients are referred to the Center for Rehabilitation from a variety of sources, including physicians, insurance carriers, social workers, home health professionals, employers and family members.
