Rehabilitative care begins with appropriate therapies that lead the patient to the greatest degree of function possible, including a transitional apartment where patients once again enter the world of independent living. Kent works with their Care New England partners to provide an uninterrupted treatment path from inpatient rehabilitation, to home care, outpatient rehabilitation and wellness services.
