Social Rehabilitation

Understanding the Concept of Rehabilitation

Defined as a set of interventions that are designed to enhance the functioning of individuals as well as alleviating their health conditions - this is what forms the concept of rehabilitation. In simple words, rehabilitation can help a child, adult, or an older person to be independent and interact with their surroundings in a much easier manner. It also helps in ensuring that individuals can participate in their fields of interest that are related to education, work, or even recreational. In addition to this, putting an individual with disabilities for rehabilitation also makes them aware of meaningful life roles which they learn and try to inculcate in their day-to-day lives.

Numerous rehabilitation centres in India offer help to individuals facing any health-related challenges. In fact, many such organisations have come forward to contribute and make it a part of their Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) activities. Rehabilitation addresses various underlying conditions like pain, etc. and helps in improving the functioning of an individual’s everyday life.

Rehabilitation is highly individual-centric. Every intervention or program set up by the centres depends on the goal and preferences of the individuals. This ensures that the ones undergoing rehab activities are comfortable. The rehabilitation workforce consists of various health professionals that include psychiatrists, physiotherapists, rehabilitation doctors, and so on. In addition to this, with the contribution from the CSR activities of the Indian companies, the workforce is getting stronger.

Social Rehabilitation

Social rehabilitation deals with more sensitive matters that help individuals stay on par with the new-age era and so on.

Social rehabilitation can be defined as: –

  • A way of achieving a higher level of social functioning in individuals dealing with mental disorders or disabilities.
  • A way of attaining better function in individuals with physical impairments or disabilities.
  • Offering services and assistance to individuals who want to establish a new and better way of life, away from the negative elements that they may have once gotten themselves into. This includes relieving individuals from drug addictions, criminal activities, and so on.

As a part of the CSR activity , more and more organisations are helping social rehabilitation centres to deliver the best quality of care and service. Social rehabilitation programs are designed in such a way that individuals develop social skills and support. This, in turn, helps them to gain more confidence and comfort in interacting with their surroundings, thus enabling the individuals to be a part of the community again.
Organisations undertaking corporate social responsibilities organise activities like social awareness camps, fashion and cultural shows for disabled people, talent hunt activities, and much more.

There is a gross misconception that only people with mental disabilities require such rehabilitation. The truth however is that anyone who suffers from depression, emotional stress, difficulty in communication, and so on requires social rehabilitation as it helps them improve their life for a better future. Social rehabilitation can help in reducing a broad range of disabilities and conditions, making the individual confident about reconnecting with the world outside. In addition to this, rehabilitation also ensures that any complication related to the individual’s mental or physical health is prevented and reduced.

It is not just the responsibility of corporate organisations to participate in such social activities. It also becomes your duty as responsible citizens of this country that you take part in activities that help socially-challenged individuals come out of their shell and interact with the community. At Narayan Seva Sansthan, we contribute to this cause by organising various social rehabilitation drives such as de-addiction camps, blood donation camps, and so on.
