  • Rehab places you can live?

    Are there any rehab places that would let you live there while you go to therapy. Finding the right place to live is a pain for some quads.

    I assume you are talking about post-acute rehabilitation programs (intensive exercise programs), not initial acute inpatient rehab. I have not heard of any, at least not in the USA.

    Both the costs and the complications of trying to arrange attendant or nursing care, and meeting requirements for Dept. of Health and other state regulations are prohibitive for most programs, I must assume.

    The SCI-Nurses are advanced practice nurses specializing in SCI/D care. They are available to answer questions, provide education, and make suggestions which you should always discuss with your physician/primary health care provider before implementing. Medical diagnosis is not provided, nor do the SCI-Nurses provide nursing or medical care through their responses on the CareCure forums.

      Hi Norm,

      It seems as though Sci-Step has some sort of pre-arranged housing. A bit pricey though..... if you have a lot of money or REAL good insurance coverage you may want to give them a call and inquire.

      If you would like to contact a realtor to find other accommodation options, please let us know!
      The housing isn't on the premises, but close by. If you're not totally independent you'd need someone to stay with you and help you out. And I imagine you'd need your own transportation as well.

        You can take a look at RIMM in Detroit, Michigan. Here is their website:
        It is located within Wayne State Univ. and they do have housing for people who decide to stay. It is a very reputable program. A couple of us went to the facility and trained the staff for an extensive period of time. It is a combination of Physical Therapy and Intensive Exercise, (post acute rehab). Hope this helps!
