The Rehabilitation Institute of Chicago (RIC) provides patients with individual, goal-oriented rehabilitation programs spanning the full range of diagnoses that can affect function, independence and quality of life in an inpatient, outpatient or day rehabilitation setting. The goal of general rehabilitation is long-term self-management and independence. Treatment plans address mobility, self-care, cognitive abilities (memory, understanding and communication deficits) and endurance for maximum participation in healthy daily living.
Through general rehabilitation, patients, including those who are not candidates for independent living, can achieve an enhanced quality of life. Individual programs may also be developed for patients whose recovery from injury or illness may be complicated by unrelated existing medical conditions, frailty or advanced age. Additional supportive services include multidisciplinary medical management, psychological support, social service coordination and vocational rehabilitation.
Comprehensive general rehabilitation services are available at several RIC locations. For more information, call our Toll Free Referral and Information Line: 1-800-354-REHAB (7342), or visit the locations page of our Web site.
