Abstract

The potential clinical and financial advantages of providing neurorehabilitation directly in patients' homes and communities have recently been discussed. However, the specific characteristics and outcomes of a coordinated, interdisciplinary, home-based programme does not currently exist in the rehabilitation literature. The present paper presents patient demographics, type and intensity of services provided, satisfaction measures, and clinical outcomes for 77 brain injured individuals in an attempt to begin to define and evaluate this new level of care. Additionally, the challenges of conducting home-based rehabilitation, and needs for further research are discussed.
