Our program offers a spacious fully-equipped gym which gives you and your clinical care team plenty of rehab therapy treatment options. Interacting with other patients during rehabilitation therapy fosters camaraderie and can help you stay motivated to reach your rehab goals.
As part of our effort to make your rehabilitation as comfortable as possible, we are pleased to offer our patients clean, cozy rooms with many of the amenities of home to help you rest before and after your rehab therapy sessions, and get a good night’s sleep.
We have a comfortable dining area and a large gym that patients can use for socializing with other patients and friends and family.
Social interactions can be an important part of rehabilitation therapy. That's why we offer a number of ways for patients to socialize with one another during their stay with us – from dining halls to lounges and common areas.
Some of the benefits of interacting with others during your rehab program can include:
- Increased self-confidence and self-esteem
- Improved physical and mental health
- Receiving encouragement from others undergoing rehab therapy
- Providing advice or encouragement to others undergoing rehab therapy
We are committed to making sure your time with us is as productive and enjoyable as possible. To that end, our program was designed to ensure that you are given every opportunity to socialize with other people undergoing rehab therapy and to make your time with us feel more like being at home or with friends and less like a hospital stay.
Support groups are an important resource for patients and their family members or caregivers. Support groups for rehabilitation programs consist of people with a common condition or problem who meet on a regular basis to talk about their experiences, share ideas, and provide support for one another.
One of the biggest advantages of support groups is that they help participants realize they are not alone – there are other people who have the same problems and goals. For many participants, this is a huge relief and important form of encouragement.
