I ask this question because my mom (who's 83) has been in 'acute rehab' twice, and only gets '25' to "almost" 30 minutes of physical therapy, but is then placed in a wheel chair for the rest of the day with NO CNA workers to walk her around her room, or even in the hallways to gain some strength. When she's given 'therapy at home', the results are much 'better'. Why is this when the 'rehab' is "supposed" to help them get back on their feet, and go home??
P.S. The nursing rehabs and hospitals seem almost 'mystified' when I tell them that in spite of my mom's 'memory issues', she DOES get around at home on her own with her 'walker'.
