Outpatient day treatment program
Our outpatient day treatment program offers a greater level of therapy than is usually offered in outpatient settings. From 9:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m., our experienced and dedicated rehabilitation staff provides quality therapy in a supervised setting, helping you or your family member return to daily activities at home and/or at work. The program includes physical, occupational, speech, and pool therapy, in addition to CNA and nursing care as needed. Group treatment, peer counseling, recreation therapy, nutrition services, and social services are also available.
At Community, our pediatric therapists are dedicated to the children they see, working to provide the highest quality of care available. We offer your family a broad selection of pediatric therapy services in a program designed to meet your child’s specific needs. We know that recovering children and those with ongoing disabilities have more than special needs. They have special families who need special skills. That’s why we also offer family/caregiver training.
