In brief: What kind available
Depends on what she is rehabilitating from. The care needed for recovering from a stroke is different than from a heart attack or serious illness.
Ask about their success with your mother's problem, what services are available, hw often care provided. Cost is a big issue too, and must be addressed. It is a good idea to go check the place out yourself to see it and meet the staff.
