[The day-care unit as a framework for successful community rehabilitation].


Due to rapid advances in psychiatric treatment, increased sophistication of welfare services, and increasing life expectancy, the number of psychiatric patients is increasing rapidly. Many of them do not have the necessary adaptive capacity to deal satisfactorily with their daily functions, such as housework, financial arrangements, and medical treatment. These patients could be assisted in day-care treatment units. We present the ideology and the different models of psychiatric day-care units which are becoming widely used in treatment, especially for rehabilitation of chronic mental patients.
