Day Institute services focus on three specialty tracks: Neurological Rehabilitation,
Amputee Rehabilitation and Medically Complex Rehabilitation.
Each track is specifically designed to maximize each participant’s independence
and abilities. The treatment team works with each participant and family to develop
an intensive treatment program appropriate for the participant’s specific diagnosis.
The team focuses on physical, cognitive, communicative, interpersonal, self-care,
behavioral and psychological changes that occur after an illness or injury. Community
reentry skills are practiced while the team also addresses prevocational needs,
school reentry, and issues related to return to driving. The program is designed
to use and build strengths to correct current deficits and teach compensatory strategies.
Medically Complex Rehabilitation Program
This track is designed for individuals diagnosed with Guillain-Barré syndrome, Parkinson’s
disease, Multiple Sclerosis or any other debilitating neurological injury such as
the myopathies or neuropathies. Just as with the neurological program, this also
focuses on maximizing mobility and self-care at home and in the community. The treatment
team can be a resource in obtaining adaptive equipment and focuses on building upon
current strengths and teaching compensatory strategies.
