Methods for rehab in the community include:
- Day hospitalization: a multidisciplinary team provides the patient with the same rehab treatment as in full hospitalization, but the component of returning to the normal living environment and family is part of the rehab effort.
- Clinics and institutes: the HMO’s institutes and rehab specialist clinics, where a more focused rehab process is continued, mainly in areas where rehab potential is observed (normally physical therapy and occupational therapy).
- Social/rehab clubs: the Neeman Association operates clubs around the country that permit the patient to maintain rehab gains and provide members with improved quality of life, a wide variety of activities, considerable satisfaction, improved abilities, new friends and a hope for a better future.
- Clubs: the Yad Sarah Association also operates clubs throughout Israel where patients of various diseases and handicaps can gather.
