All patients admitted to the program receive Individualized skilled Occupational, Physical, and Speech Therapy offered up to 7 days a week based on your individual needs and goals up to 3 hours a day. This program is designed to treat adults with CVAs, brain injuries, spinal cord injuries, Parkinson’s disease and other neurological illnesses resulting in residual deficits and disability.
We recognize that the effects of these conditions result in loss of function and disability that is overwhelming to the individual and his/her family.
