Our staff is professionally trained to follow rehabilitative protocols designed to achieve the best possible results in re-gaining communication skills, improving mobility, strength training for using wheelchairs and walkers, carrying out daily activities (such as toileting, bathing, dressing and cooking), and improving muscle function. They provide motivation and emotional support to help patients cope with alterations in their life that have resulted from injury or illness.

Our patients typically have a very structured day, designed to make the process as efficient and effective as possible. Part of the day is devoted to follow-up medical care designed to address ongoing physical issues, and part of the day involves physical and occupational therapy to help the patient build up strength and functional skills.

Duration of treatment varies depending on the severity of the condition and potential for improvement. This differs widely depending on the condition being treated and the patient's involvement in his/her rehabilitation program.
