Rehabilitation and Restorative Care
This unit offers two different types of care. Rehab services specializes in the vigorous rehabilitation of people who have suffered from a disabling physical illness or injury. We help people who have an impairment from events such as a spinal cord injury, stroke, amputation, etc. to maximize their independence.
Our Restorative Care service also helps patients regain their independence. Most patients in this program are admitted after they have been treated for a sudden illness and who need to re-build their strength in order to return home. The patients receiving Restorative Care are usually not strong enough for Rehab. Patients who enter this program are sometimes considering applying for placement in a long-term care facility, but once they complete the Restorative Care program, they are able to return home rather than moving to long-term care.
To celebrate the Summer Olympics, staff and patients in the Rehabilitation and Restorative Care program at GBHS hosted their own day of games. Everyone won a medal!
