Low Tolerance Long Duration (LTLD) rehabilitation is provided for individuals impacted by neurological injury or illness or by a complicated medical illness, surgical procedure, or trauma. It involves a longer course of rehabilitation than traditional active rehabilitation programs, with shorter periods of time spent in therapy each day (approximately 30 minutes and adjusted to the patient's tolerance). The program was introduced in a 38-bed patient care unit in April 2007 and has since grown and developed. The program is designed to prepare patients to return home or to the community, with supports as needed. The data shows that patients graduate from the LTLD program and return home or graduate to a high tolerance program.
