After a surgery or illness, one of the most important questions you may face will be deciding which recovery setting is best for your needs. Your primary goal is to return to a level of activity you are accustomed to, and the recovery setting you choose can have a direct effect on how quickly you are able to reach those goals. LifeWorks Rehab may help make that difference for you, and offers many distinct advantages over home healthcare programs.
