What to Expect
Patients in our rehabilitation program receive a minimum of three hours of therapy a day, at least five days per week. Therapy is provided on weekends, with a less strict schedule to allow for visitors and rest. We have found that patients reach the highest level of independence when they receive individual therapy to relearn necessary skills, combined with group therapy designed to maximize interaction, independence and carryover of skills learned in real-life situations. Variation to this intensity may increase or decrease, depending on the patient's evaluation and individual needs.
