Delivery of rehabilitation services
Rehabilitation is organised at a rehabilitation institution where you can stay overnight. The content of the rehabilitation period depends on your personal needs and goals. The delivery of the rehabilitation is the responsibility of a multidisciplinary team of professionals comprising among others a specialist physician, a nurse, a physical therapist, a psychologist or neuropsychologist and a social worker.
A close relative or the family members of a child or an adolescent may also attend the rehabilitation sessions. In the case of children and adolescents, other members of the client’s family usually attend all rehabilitation sessions. In the case of adults, only one family member or one close relative may attend rehabilitation sessions part of the time.
