Our multidisciplinary team is dedicated to serving the individual needs of each patient. We seek to involve family members and friends to support patients during treatment and improve its effectiveness.
Will my insurance cover rehabilitation at Loma Linda University Medical Center?
We are contracted with most major health care plans. We also accept Medicare, Medi-Cal and California Children's Services.
What is the estimated length of stay for each of your rehabilitation programs?
Each program varies. Length of stay is based upon the severity of the patient's injury or illness, his/her age, and the patient's previous state of health. Once the patient is in the rehabilitation program and has been evaluated by the team, an estimated length of stay will be provided to you and your family. Acute rehabilitation stays focus on progressing the patient to the point of returning home and continuing with rehabilitation on an outpatient basis.
What type of training is provided to assist me in caring for my family member?
Families are encouraged to be very involved in the rehabilitation training process. Our program coordinator and clinical team set up family training sessions. In those training sessions, the emphasis is on teaching family members or caregivers how to assist the patient at home. The family also learns how to let the patient do what they can for themselves. The Rehabilitation Institute has an extensive videotape and book library available for family and patient education.
