Day rehabilitation programs are intensive, multidisciplinary, and comprehensive. They typically consist of four to seven hours of daily rehabilitative therapies (i.e., physical therapy, occupational therapy, speech therapy) five days per week and include a combination of one-to-one and group therapy. A component of a day rehabilitation program may include other medical services that include psychological therapy, nursing, and case management. Day rehabilitation programs are offered in an outpatient setting, and the individual returns home each evening and for the entire weekend. Day rehabilitation programs are provided when the individual requires the intensity of acute inpatient rehabilitation but does not require the medical and nursing supervision provided in acute inpatient rehabilitation 24 hours a day.
Maintenance therapy is a continuation of care and management of the individual when the therapeutic goals of a treatment plan have been achieved, no additional functional improvement is apparent or expected to occur, the provision of services for a condition ceases to be of therapeutic value, and the therapy is no longer considered medically appropriate or medically necessary. This includes maintenance services that seek to prevent disease, promote health, and prolong and enhance the quality of life.
