Your stay usually begins with a referral from your personal physician and/or case manager/social worker. As soon as we receive a referral:
- A rehabilitation liaison and/or case manager will discuss our program so that you know what to expect.
- Any questions you have will be answered and we’ll let you know what to bring for your stay with us.
Your personal therapy program
No two people are alike, so our experts will design a personalized therapy program to meet your individual needs. The length of time you spend with us will depend on your unique rehabilitation needs and achievements.
- On a typical day, you will have therapy for at least three hours in divided sessions.
- There are support groups that let you talk with others who are facing challenges similar to yours.
- If you need a break, our specialists will provide you with ample time to rest and recharge before you begin a new activity.
- Once a week your team will meet with you and your family to discuss your progress and review your goals and discharge plan.
- Your case manager/social worker will meet with you and your family on a regular basis to address any concerns.
- Our goal is for you to return home leading an active and independent life. Before you leave, an individualized home exercise program will be provided to help you continue to recover.
The center is designed to provide plenty of room and time for leisure activities and socializing with other patients. There are recreational activities that you can take part in including a cooking group. For your enjoyment, we also offer free in-house television and local phone service.
