Post Acute Rehabilitation

Post-Acute Rehabilitation is a temporary living program designed to help patients go home after finishing acute care. Usually, it allows patients undergoing a major surgical process or suffering a severe medical crisis to return to normal life. The primary objective of this rehabilitation program is to provide the patients such an environment that speeds up their recovery outside the hospital.
