Job Description for Rehabilitation Counselor

Rehabilitation counselors assist individuals with mental and/or physical disabilities to improve their quality of life and ability to live independently. They conduct evaluations of patients' needs, abilities, health and goals for rehabilitation; using this evaluation and any other relevant information, they work with patients to develop a rehabilitation or treatment plan. Rehabilitation counselors then work to enact this plan - which may involve input and support from other healthcare providers such as doctors and psychologists - and assess its progress over time, making any adjustments as needed. Other tasks performed by rehabilitation counselors may include arranging services such as job training, providing individual and/or group counseling, and helping find resources for patients that may help them in rehabilitation (such as wheelchairs).
