Transitional Apartment

Our transitional apartment allows you, along with a family member or caregiver, to practice in a home-like environment activities of daily living such as showering, grooming, getting items from the closet and drawers, dressing and laundry, as well as new mobility techniques that can be helpful when you return home.

This transitional apartment environment also helps with getting in and out of a regular bed, and becoming comfortable again using home furnishings.

The kitchen space helps with adaptive cooking techniques, enabling safe cooking at home, customized to your abilities.

This practice environment helps ease many of the concerns that patients, families and their caregivers have about transitioning back home. And it’s a chance to identify additional learning opportunities, for a seamless return home.


Gym

Our gym features state of the art equipment to meet all of our patient’s functional needs. From Body Weight Supported Treadmill training, to the Dynavision—this space is an open, welcoming and bright environment for you to master the skills you need to return safely to your home and community.


Case Management

Case managers on the unit organize weekly team conferences to facilitate and continually update your care plan as your recovery progresses. They will also work with you to coordinate billing (insurance, Medicare, self-pay, etc.). 


Returning Home

Discharge Planning brings you, your family and other caregivers together with a social worker and the team to develop a personalized plan for after discharge. Your social worker also arranges the necessary support systems and resources to help you cope with the impact of your illness or injury.

Our Peer Mentor Program is available for those who wish to expand their support network and gain additional perspective by speaking with past patients who have undergone similar injuries and illnesses.
