COVID-19 Rehab Group Aims To Help With Arduous Recovery Process
Many COVID-19 patients report both physical and psychological problems after leaving the hospital. Their experience is referred to as “post-intensive care syndrome.” Now a new University of Missouri-St. Louis psychosocial rehabilitation group aims to help adults age 50 and older as they deal with the syndrome and the overall recovery process.
On Tuesday's St. Louis on the Air, clinical geropsychologist Ann Steffen, a professor of psychological sciences at UMSL, described why such a group is necessary for those recovering from the virus.
