The power of home rehabilitation: A single case study

Research output: Contribution to journalArticleResearchpeer-review

Abstract

This single case study reports on an 81-year-old woman who underwent a rehabilitation programme initially in a hospital inpatient setting, then in a home setting. There was a clinically significant improvement in functional outcomes following the home-based rehabilitation, but not following the inpatient rehabilitation programme. This case study illustrates that empowerment of the patient may sometimes be greater in the home environment, possibly due to different roles taken by the patient and therapist in the home compared with roles taken in a hospital environment. This patient reported feelings of being in more control at home, with greater capacity to set their own goals, and improved feelings of motivation with this increased level of engagement. This increased empowerment can lead to more effective outcomes for patients undergoing rehabilitation in the home, and must be considered as an ideal rehabilitation environment for some patients.
