Pleasant Hope, MO
SSM Health Rehabilitation Hospital's Day Institute Program offers a specialized, outpatient rehabilitation program in a flexible full-day format for individuals who can benefit from a comprehensive approach to recovery, but don't necessarily need rehabilitation in the acute hospital setting.
The Day Institute has three specialty tracks:
Each track is specifically designed to maximize independence by using remaining strengths to correct current deficits and teach compensatory strategies. The participant completes treatment appropriate for their diagnosis, focusing on, but not limited to: physical, cognitive, communicative, interpersonal, self-care, community re-entry, revocational, behavioral and psychological changes that occur after an injury or illness. Each track assists the participant with becoming more aware of the changes in themselves after an injury or illness and how those changes impact their lives in home, work, school or leisure environments.
The goals of the program are to maximize personal and functional independence that reestablishes a daily routine.
Most participants benefit from a five-day-a-week program, which includes both individual and group therapies in physical, occupational and speech therapy, therapeutic recreation rehabilitation, specific therapies and activities are designed with this in mind. Since community reintegration is such an important goal of working with therapeutic recreation specialists, participants practice activities for daily living. To enhance community re-integration, community outings are regularly scheduled to identify and practice needed skills and mobilities.
To make therapy more accessible and convenient to participants and their families, the Day Institute offers transportation services to pick up and drop off participants at their homes, for a nominal fee. (Van is wheelchair accessible.) Services are based on transport van availability and can be scheduled daily.
