Specific Strategies for Families to Increase Their Involvement in the Rehabilitation Process
Provide the social worker with a written list of questions that you would like to have addressed at team meetings (if possible, make these questions available prior to the team meeting).
Do not hesitate to address questions and concerns directly with a member of the team. This way, any modifications in the treatment plan can be made more efficiently. Please ask for clarification when you do not understand specific terms or concepts. Please see our Glossary
page for terms that may be unfamiliar.
Questions that can be asked of the treatment team in order to gain information include:
- What level of supervision will my loved one need?What continued therapy services will my loved one be receiving after discharge?
- What are my loved one’s current treatment goals?
- What is my loved one’s current rate of progress?
- How can I prepare my home for my loved one’s return?
