Homeward Bound Program
Homeward Bound is a short-term rehabilitation program, which focuses on addressing the specific needs of each patient. Treatment programs are individualized in order to allow our patients to reach their maximum potential. Because we believe that family support and education are vital aspects in providing excellence in care and assisting the patient to maximize functional ability and independence, family involvement in the rehabilitation process is encouraged.

All our therapists and therapy assistants are part of our interdisciplinary team of professionals who will help you define and work toward your individual rehabilitation goals. Physical therapy helps with strength and balance, while occupational therapy helps improve fine motor skills for the job of living, addressing areas such as bathing, dressing and eating.
