Advanced Care Rehabilitation Rehabilitation provides the services that help you keep, get back, or improve skills and function for daily living that you have lost because of illness, injury, or disability. These services are provided in a variety of settings, including inpatient and outpatient programs.
More than 30,000 Department of Defense beneficiaries who have suffered from severe limb loss or dysfunction receive specialized and holistic care at the Military Health System’s three Advanced Rehabilitation Centers, or ARCs. This comprehensive care includes physical and occupational therapy, speech-language pathology, and psychiatric rehabilitation services, all of which are designed to improve and maintain their ability to live independently.
Empowering Progress: Embracing Personalized Rehab Experiences for Holistic Recovery in the UK
Despite the well-known benefits of palliative care, many patients with advanced cancer experience unmet needs in areas such as informational, patient care and support, and activities of daily living. In addition, it has been shown that rehabilitation can help to alleviate these unmet needs for some advanced cancer patients, e.g. by increasing functional independence and quality of life (QoL).
In Denmark, the QoL of socioeconomically disadvantaged cancer patients is underreported. Moreover, research concerning access to and need for rehabilitation and palliative care is sparse. The aim of this scoping review was to map existing research on this topic.
People who are hospitalized for a condition that requires acute-level care, such as a pneumonia or a bloodstream infection may be eligible to sign up for the Advanced Care at Home program. This innovative, technology-enabled care model allows patients to opt in to shorten their hospital stay and receive the same high-quality, inpatient-level care at home that they would normally receive in a hospital setting. This care model also frees up resources in the hospital to address urgent concerns such as COVID-19.
