Description Rehabilitation is a progressive, dynamic, goal-oriented and time-limited process. In Rehabilitation, people with disabilities (either congenital or acquired through injury or illness) work (based on patient/client goals) to achieve an optimal level of function and independence within their family and community. Rehabilitation addresses all spheres of life including mobility, communication, activities of daily living, vocation, leisure, spiritual and emotional concerns. The philosophy and goals of Rehabilitation for the patient include the restoration of optimal function, enhancement of quality of life and reintegration into the community. This philosophy is often described as "adding life to years" rather than the acute care orientation towards "adding years to life."
