Rehabilitation, or rehab, at the Neville Center consists of physical, occupational, and speech therapy.

The goal of rehabilitation at the Neville Center is to work with patients to achieve the highest level of independent function possible. A wide variety of techniques are employed to address specific needs.

The Neville Center can accommodate both long term care and short term rehabilitation stays. The main difference between the two is that Medicare and private insurance can cover a short term rehabilitation stay, but not long term care. In rare cases, when a patient completes their rehabilitation at Neville Center, it is determined that they are not able to return to their home. At this point if the patient decides to stay at Neville Center (or transfers to any other facility) the stay would be considered long term. There are two ways to pay for long term care: privately (out-of-pocket) and Medicaid/MassHealth.

Your Medicare or private insurance will cover your room and board, nursing, and rehabilitation at The Neville Center after a qualifying hospital stay. If you have specific questions about how your insurance will pay for rehabilitation, we encourage you to call us and ask to speak to the Business Office.
