The Firsts Steps to Recovery

Your care plan focuses on your goals throughout your stay, such as re-learning how to climb stairs or eat. You and your family are the most important part of our team. That’s why we regularly meet with you to talk about your progress and plan for your eventual transition home.
You can expect to complete three hours of therapy each day. Physical therapists, occupational therapists and speech-language pathologists help you to become more independent.
