simple terms, rehabilitation deals with the care that one needs to get back, keep, or improve abilities that the person will need for daily life. Physical, mental and cognitive – rehabilitation therapy deals with getting back, keeping or improving these abilities.
A person may lose his/her physical, mental, or cognitive abilities due to different reasons. The common reasons include – diseases or injury, developmental disabilities, birth defects, genetic disorders, side effect of medical treatment, surgery etc.
Without these abilities, leading a normal life can become difficult for a person. For example, loss in physical ability can lead to difficulty in performing tasks such as – walking, sitting, running etc.
The main aim of rehabilitation therapy is to improve the daily life of people suffering from physical, mental and cognitive disabilities. It helps improve the quality of their life and overall functioning.
CBR deals with applying the principles of rehabilitation therapy at community level. Instead of focusing on an individual, CBR deals with a part of the population/community.
