Inpatients at the Rehabilitation Center reside in a specialized unit which accommodates 63 persons. The unit is staffed with rehabilitation nurses who promote patient independence. Patients dress in their own clothes and are able to socialize when therapies are not in progress.
During the day, patients attend specific therapy sessions. In the state-of-the-art gym, patients receive occupational and physical therapy services ranging from ambulation training to homemaking skill development. Those who have difficulty with communication, reasoning, or swallowing are also seen by a speech and language pathologist daily. During one's stay at the Rehabilitation Center, case managers engage in discharge planning with patient and family, as well as provide vital links to support groups and community services.
