Gentiva: Rehab Without Walls Program Rehab Without Walls is dedicated to removing walls — including physical, emotional and geographical — that can slow recovery. The advantage of this comprehensive service is that a skilled clinical team, which can include physical therapists, occupational therapists, recreational therapists, speech pathologists, clinical social workers, nutritionists and neuropsychologists, is able to teach relevant skills in the patient's environment as opposed to a staged setting. Instead of just learning to prepare a meal, patients learn to shop in their local grocery store and use their own kitchen. Rather than simply focusing on grooming skills, patients learn to navigate their own bathrooms. The ultimate goal of Rehab Without Walls is to provide care in a comfortable, familiar environment, help patients experience better outcomes and reduce hospital costs.
