Rehabilitation Hospital

Also referred to as inpatient rehabilitation hospitals; they are devoted to the rehabilitation of patients with various neurological, musculo-skeletal, orthopedic and other medical conditions following stabilization of their acute medical issues. The industry is largely made up by independent hospitals that operate these facilities within acute care hospitals. There are also inpatient rehabilitation hospitals that offer this service in a hospital-like setting, but separate from acute care facilities. Most inpatient rehabilitation facilities are located within hospitals.

Group Home

is a private residence for children or young people who cannot live with their families, people with chronic disabilities who may be adults, seniors, or people with dementia. Typically there are no more than six residents and there is at least one trained caregiver there 24 hours a day.[1] In some early "model programs", a house manager, night manager, weekend activity coordinator, and 4 part-time skill teachers were reported.[2] Originally, the term group home referred to homes of 8 to 16 individuals, which was a state-mandated size during deinstitutionalization.[3] Residential nursing facilities, also included in this article, may be as large in 2015 as 100 individuals, which is no longer the case in field such as intellectual and developmental disabilities.
