    I am just wondering if anyone has any input in including people with dementia in inpatient rehabilitation programs. I keep having discussions with the rehab team that sound like this: “why can’t this person go to rehab” “because he/she has dementia and will not be able to learn new skills”. I feel that this is inaccurate and we are potentially keeping people out of rehab who may make functional, meaningful gains but I have no evidence to back up this assumption. Thoughts?
