Recreational therapy plays an important role in your recovery after an injury. It will guide you back into the community and help you feel more comfortable, confident, and help you enjoy life. Recreational therapists will work with your care team during your inpatient stay in preparing you for home.
We also offer community-based therapies: the Bridge Program; Wellness with Water, Neuro Group; and Wellness with Water, One on One. No prior patient history with St. Luke's is required.
This community-based rehabilitation program is designed for people of all ages recovering from neurological injuries (brain injury, spinal cord injury, stroke, or other neurological condition). The mission of the Community Bridge Program is to restore a level of independence in your community and home environment, while promoting health and wellness through increased participation in meaningful activities.
Opportunities are available in various settings, including:
Although this program is not covered by insurance, your first 45-minute consultation with a recreation therapist is free.
You and your therapist will establish an individualized plan. Most patient goals can be met during 3 hours of therapy for a fee of $120. Each additional session is $35.
Classes are Mondays and Wednesdays, from 2-3 p.m., beginning the first week of each month.
$100 pre-pay for eight sessions (1 month).
You and your recreational therapist will work toward your functional goals and overall mobility in an individual setting. These sessions are appropriate for a variety of medical conditions, and provide a good opportunity for you to develop your individual pool program and train your family or caregivers to assist with your transition to a community-based pool.
$38 per 45-minute session.
