Real-World Transitions for a Smoother Recovery
Therapy Village, with all its components to make it possible for rehabilitation patients to re-acclimate to the community during their stay at St. Joseph of the Pines, accommodates an unlimited number of patients with joint replacements, congestive heart disease, prosthetic limbs, debilitating arthritis or neurological impairment. Therapy Village’s walls embrace life-sized daily living apparatuses, such as automobiles, grocery store shelves, a putting green, a mini theater, bank and post office areas and restaurant setting.
The objective of bridging the gap between rehabilitation and reality, the design of the building, the equipment contained therein and the St. Joseph associates charged with teaching, strengthening and collectively healing the patients, is a concept many consider very unique. It offers the opportunity for patients to relearn routine daily activities in an environment that will resemble what they will encounter after leaving St. Joseph of the Pines. Therapy Village includes two separate rehab areas focusing on all three therapeutic disciplines including physical, occupational, and speech. The individuals coming to St. Joseph for rehab are interested in finding out how quickly they can get back to living life. With this state-of-the-art rehab gym, residents see that reality.
