When you arrive at John Muir Medical Center, Walnut Creek, you’ll be greeted and admitted into the medical center, and provided an orientation to the unit. The rehabilitation physician will review your case to determine which interdisciplinary team members should be involved in your care, and each member of this team will then perform an evaluation.
We encourage you to participate in setting the goals that will be incorporated into your individualized plan of care. Daily treatment sessions are scheduled based on your specific needs. You’ll be preparing to return to your daily routines, so you’ll wear street clothes during the day. The skills you’ve learned during therapy sessions are practiced throughout the day with your rehabilitation team.
We invite your family and caregivers to participate in the rehabilitation process, and will arrange family training sessions as needed. Since optimal results depend on your full participation in your rehabilitation program, we recommend that visitors come for brief periods in the evening or on weekends. If medically necessary, your doctor may order visitation restrictions.
