Teaming with Families and Caregivers

True success begins at the medical center, but ultimately is measured by how the person functions at home. Cadence Health Rehabilitation Specialists collaborate closely with patients, family members and other caregivers to assure a continuity of care from the medical center to the home environment (or to an intermediate care facility, when appropriate).

An individualized home program is an important step in rehabilitation. Our therapists educate patients, family members and caregivers about home care and how to reinforce rehabilitation at home. We also incorporate the family/caregiver’s goals into our overall rehabilitation plan.


Cadence Health Rehabilitation Services provides a broad spectrum of services for inpatients and outpatients. Rehabilitation typically begins with an evaluation of the individual’s level of functioning and dysfunction. Using that, as well as information from the referring physician, we develop a customized rehabilitation plan. We believe in a comprehensive approach that considers the person’s illness or injury, emotional or social issues, and goals of the patient and their family.
