Here at the apex hospital in our country, Bhutan, some of the rehabilitation services include physiotherapy interventions. occupational therapy interventions, SLP interventions and prosthesis and orthosis. But in the districts it is usually the PT services available, the rest of the professionals do not exist there.

Another scenario is once the patient is discharged from the ward they will be referred to continue the rehab at the opd settings. If need be OT,SLPs and PNOs referrals are also made. Those families who can afford the home service on monetary basis, hires the rehab professionals to come at their house and do the necessaries. A palliative care at its infancy stage is also trying to cater the rehabilitation services to those families who are financially deprived and can not afford to bring the patient to the daily opd services.
