This chapter discusses some professional perspectives on rehabilitation practices and contexts. Managed care services are showing a shrinking of time and services—particularly of the social and community-focused kind—that can be offered or supported in most rehabilitation settings. This is due to the fact that rehabilitation has been counterbalanced by deficit budgets, increased costs, and the stay limits and capitations imposed by managed care. In relation to this problem, Dr. Larsen, a doctor of rehabilitation medicine (Physiatry) at the Rehab Center, points out that the people needing rehabilitation in recent years are being taken care of via outpatient settings. Because of this, critical pieces of the rehabilitation process—mobility, obtaining personal care assistance, identifying and obtaining available services and entitlements—were often neglected.
