Assessing Family Caregivers using the PATH-s Instrument


Family caregivers are central to a successful discharge home for patients receiving inpatient rehabilitation services; yet their needs and concerns are often not assessed. Completing and documenting a comprehensive caregiver assessment has become a national priority.
