Capital Region Rehabilitation Services have provided care to patients and families since 1977.
Mission: To improve the functional independence of individuals with activity limitations.
Purpose: To provide comprehensive rehabilitation services to individuals with a disabling disease or injury in order to maximize functional independence and enhance quality of life.
This goal is facilitated by the efforts of a team of professionals specifically trained in rehabilitation. Our 14-bed unit offers intensive patient and family education and training to promote the individual's return to home and community.
Maximizing your functional independence
The process of recovering from a disease or illness includes treatment, recovery, rehabilitation and return to community living. Rehabilitation enables the individual with new activity limitations to achieve the best possible functional outcome and continue to enhance his or her quality of life. How quickly an individual recovers after treatment is dependent on the individual, their degree of disability and the intensity of their rehabilitation program; it is important to begin the rehabilitation process as soon as possible.
Your personal physician may be involved with your care if they have staff privileges at Capital Region and desire to be an active participant. Usually, your physician transfers your care to the physiatrist during the rehabilitation program.
A visit to our unit is the best way to appreciate the quality of care available. If that is not possible, please contact us for more information or a personal tour.
