Why inpatient rehabilitation when outpatient rehabilitation makes so much sense?
Some examples of acute, life and health changing events are heart attacks, bypass operations, strokes, fractures, joint replacements or other interventions.
The aim of the rehabilitation that usually follows is to help the patient, who is currently limited by their impaired performance, to lead as normal and active a life as possible at work, at home and in society, using a combination of medicinal, psychology and social measures. But who says that rehabilitation always has to take place in an inpatient setting, far from home?
30% aller Patienten wünschen sich schon heute eine „ambulante Rehabilitation“ – Tendenz steigend. Meist sind es persönliche Gründe: Mit der Familie zusammen sein, die eigene Umgebung einer Klinik vorziehen, sich um Angehörige kümmern oder einen Betrieb führen wollen.
It all depends on the individual circumstances. In these cases, we carefully check whether the body has the ability to tolerate a certain strain and the necessary mobility to make outpatient rehabilitation possible.
Depending on the medical necessity, our outpatient rehabilitation consists of detailed information about the illness, intensive physiotherapy, including using equipment, relaxation training, diet advice or psycho-social advice. In addition to specialist support, we also offer patients
- Help to help themselves
- Help to deal with their illness and its consequences
- Help to continue with their life following an acute event
The benefits of outpatient rehabilitation are clear - Familiar environment, involvement of loved ones, flexible time, close communication between us and the hospital, specialist or GP, patient is motive to take part in further courses / offers, plus clear cost benefits compared to inpatient rehabilitation.
