Background and Purpose: Effective rehabilitation management of patients with cognitive impairment presents challenge to clinicians. Cognitive deficits affecting attention, memory, language, visuospatial abilities, executive functioning, and reasoning/insight have been reported to reduce the chances of successful rehab outcomes compared to cognitively intact individuals [2,3]. As the geriatric population continues to swell, the incidence of neurocognitive impairment has been reported to affect up to 64% of those receiving inpatient rehab services [4]. Dissemination of rehabilitation strategies that provide the ability for those with cognitive impairment to successfully rehab is imperative.
