Neurological Rehabilitation Program

The Outpatient Neuro Rehab Program offered by Aurora Rehabilitation Center provides exceptional therapy services for people who live at home that have experienced physical limitations caused by stroke, neurological disorders, amputation or other reasons. The Outpatient Neuro Rehab Program is located at Aurora West Allis Medical Center.

The skills and services that are available through our inpatient program are also available for those patients well enough to live at home. This allows them, along with their family members/home caregivers, to receive an intense level of therapy services in an outpatient setting.

The Outpatient Neuro Rehab Program is backed by an experienced team of professionals from:

  • Physiatry
  • Therapeutic Recreation
  • Physical Therapy
  • Psychology
  • Occupational Therapy
  • Nursing and Social Work (on a limited basis)
  • Speech Pathology

While in our care, the team meets on a regular basis to discuss the patient's progress and treatment plans. We communicate with the patient, their family and/or home caregivers along the way.

Patients may qualify for this program if they:

  • Are in a medically stable condition
  • Do not need skilled nursing
  • Have family or other supportive caregivers capable of safely meeting their needs at home
  • Have transportation to and from therapy sessions*
  • Need the care of a therapy team

The Outpatient Neuro Rehab Program is different than traditional outpatient therapy because it is designed to provide treatment by several experts. It can be scheduled to meet the individual needs of each patient. The frequency of a patient's therapy sessions may be higher at first, and then become less, which spreads the sessions over a longer period of time for greater benefit. When appropriate, a patient may benefit from rest breaks, time to eat lunch, or time to practice a home program with supervision in the clinic, but outside the one-on-one therapy session. We are also able to provide aquatic therapy using our on-site swimming pool. A recreation specialist is available to help patients recover skills for the things they enjoy doing during their free time.

Individualized treatment

Our team of rehab specialists assess a patient's needs to create a treatment plan that's right for them. Individualized patient goals are established using a team approach to:

  • Assist the patient and family with adjusting to a new lifestyle
  • Challenge people to reach their best physical, emotional, speech, social and community potential
  • Educate each person and their family about therapy and what each member of the team does
  • Maintain or improve each patient's level of independence after treatment through community resources
