Your Team of Caregivers
Rehabilitation is a complex process. Its success depends on multiple disciplines seamlessly working together to set treatment goals and monitor progress.
The care of each patient admitted to TIRR Memorial Hermann is managed by a full interdisciplinary team of highly qualified individuals with specialized training in the field of rehabilitation. The team, led by a physician who specializes in physical medicine and rehabilitation, includes physical therapists, occupational therapists, speech therapists, music therapists, rehabilitation nurses, pharmacists, social workers, case managers, dietitians, therapeutic recreation specialists, neuropsychologists and respiratory therapists. Each team member contributes to the overall plan of care for the patient.
A patient's team of caregivers may include:
The role of family and friends is critical to the rehabilitation process. Throughout the rehab stay, we are committed to teaching the information and skills needed to care for your loved one. We will provide opportunities to practice new skills with guidance from our staff. We encourage involvement in daily care and decision making. Your participation is valued and encouraged; we invite you to attend therapies and collaborate with all members of the rehab team. The entire care team will be guides to ensure you feel comfortable as you prepare to leave this setting.
