Inpatient Stroke Rehabilitation Program and Inpatient Geriatric Rehabilitation Program

 

Patients admitted to our rehabilitation programs receive timely, equitable and consistent access to the rehabilitation care that they need. The rehabilitation programs address a wide variety of issues including: 

  • Self-care skills such as feeding, grooming, dressing, bathing and toileting
  • Mobility skills such as transfers, walking and self-propelling a wheelchair
  • Communication skills in speech and language
  • Cognitive skills such as memory and problem solving
  • Social skills for interacting with other people

The goals of rehabilitation are based on the needs of the patient and their families. During their stay, patients will be challenged to acquire the necessary skills that will foster independence and autonomy in their own activities of daily living in a stimulating and supportive environment.
