What’s the difference between inpatient and outpatient rehabilitation?

There are several key differences between inpatient and outpatient rehabilitation at The GAP. These differences include:

  • Length of Stay: Inpatients live within the Rehabilitation Inhouse Unit during the 30-day duration of their treatment while outpatients undergo therapy at the clinic and return home afterward.
  • Referrals: Inpatient rehabilitation referrals can be initiated by physicians, patients and their families, discharge planners and health professionals, while the outpatient clinic offers counseling & therapy services to inpatients and the community through appointment or referral.
  • Cost: While inpatient rehabilitation facilities (IRF) cost more per day than a lower level of care, studies suggest that IRF patients return home much sooner. Therefore, the significantly shorter lengths of stay reduce costs in the long run.
  • Treatment Frequency: Inpatients undergo counseling six days per week for a minimum of three hours per day, while outpatients undergo counseling based on individual evaluations.

Can family members participate in the inpatient therapy process?

Yes. We encourage family members to do whatever they can to support the patient, including participating in the rehabilitation therapy process. Our interdisciplinary team of physicians and therapists work with each patient and their family to address the patient’s needs and progress at a personalized pace. We use a progressive approach to ensure each individualized treatment plan focuses on potential, not on limitations.
