rehab team…They worked me hard and efficient, always looking and striving for my improved health and physical well-being. Thank you all so much"

RehabOur dedicated team of rehabilitation professionals focuses on designing a goal-oriented plan of care that promotes independence, the highest level of health and function, as well as freedom from pain. To accomplish this, our team is led by a physiatrist (a physician specializing in physical medicine and rehabilitation) and includes members from the following disciplines: physical therapy, occupational therapy, speech-language pathology, rehabilitation nursing, social work, neuropsychology, nutrition, respiratory therapy.

Also considered an integral part of the team are patients and their family members, who make informed decisions about inpatient and outpatient services, follow-up care, home adjustments and other special needs.
A case manager will coordinate individualized rehab care and meet regularly with the entire medical care team to monitor each patient's progress

Therapists work on everyday living skills and teach patients how to take care of themselves so they can return to their homes and communities at their highest level of independence and with a positive quality of life. We target physical, emotional, and vocational areas when looking at setting goals for our patients. To achieve these goals, patients at Kent Rehab are encouraged to do many things for themselves including dressing eating and bathing.
