Stroke Recovery

One American suffers a stroke every 45 seconds, making it a leading cause of serious, long-term disability. Our highly skilled staff helps individuals recover their strength and regain their lives after experiencing a stroke or other neurological impairment.

We offer the combined expertise of many specialties, all working together toward one goal: our patient's success.

Traditional therapies play a crucial role in recovery, as well as the latest sophisticated technologies, and we have both. We also provide specialized services designed to rebuild each patient's confidence and skills, including: an innovative driving program, peer support, communication recovery groups, community outings, and more.

Brain Injury Program

By combining the talents of a well-respected team of experts, we offer today's most effective therapies. The result is improved outcomes for patients of all ages.

Our Cognitive Recovery Center includes activities to recover memory, problem-solving skills and critical thinking abilities. Trips to museums, shopping centers and other public places give patients the opportunity to practice life skills. We also help patients relearn the skills essential for day-to-day living. Grocery shopping, management of time and finances and appropriate social interaction are some of the areas of focus. The program is designed to monitor progress toward goals, and to build self-awareness, confidence, skills and compensation strategies at home and in the community.

Spinal Cord Injury Program

Considered one of the state's most qualified spinal cord injury programs, we offer exceptional expertise in helping patients successfully return to the joys of everyday life.

Our experienced, multidisciplinary team specializes in managing the medical and psychosocial issues associated with spinal cord injuries. Our goal is to help the individual reach their highest potential.

Counseling, support and education—for patients and families alike—help ensure progress and healing that is not only physical, but emotional and spiritual as well.

Recovery is a Life Long Process

An important part of recovery is taking that "next step"—transitioning to the community after formal therapy. A unique part of our services include the following re-entry programs for the disabled:

  • Community Exercise Programs
  • Communication Recovery Program
  • Tai Chi
  • Saebo® Splinting Program
  • Ongoing Stroke Education Classes
