vocational rehabilitation

Vocational rehabilitation rates for End-Stage Renal Disease (ESRD) patients are the worst among all types of disability populations. Patients who worked full-time before starting dialysis will lose about 60% of their income by going on disability. Part-time work, volunteering, and going to school can all make patients feel better about themselves. It is widely documented that patients who work are happier, stay healthier, and live longer.
