Job Description for Rehabilitation Assistant

An individual's physical or occupational therapy for an injury or illness usually involves not only licensed therapists, but also rehabilitation assistants. These assistants work under the direction of licensed therapists, nurses, or other healthcare professionals, and assist patients in areas of mobility as well as in operating devices or equipment as part of the rehabilitation process. They may also help therapists to monitor patients' responses, which is especially important for those involved in rehabilitating cognitive processes or speech and communication, as even minute signals or reactions from patients can be of great importance.
