Many people depend upon personal health devices such as reading glasses, hearing aides and c-pap machines in their daily lives. Despite full awareness of the important role these devices play, these items are still often left at home by brain injury survivors when they enter into an in-patient rehabilitation program.
Patients are asked to read written directions and hear verbal instructions in therapies. Realistically, they will need their reading glasses and hearing aides on a daily basis in order to attain their maximum potential level of rehabilitation success. After an injury patients need sleep even more than they did in their lives prior, so it is that much more vital that they continue use of their c-pap machines. These are just a few examples of how personal health devices are important in rehabilitation.
Personal health devices should be considered in the same way soap, toothpaste and other necessities of basic daily health and hygiene maintenance are considered. Just as you would not forget soap and toothpaste when coming for rehabilitation, you should also be sure to remember all personal health devices.
