Peer support is offered to individuals with spinal cord injuries, stroke, head injury/TBI, limb loss, Guillain-Barré syndrome.

“The staff members were excellent. This is a top-notch rehab center! If it were not for the therapists pushing me, I would not be where I am and would not feel comfortable going home.”
“Everyone was very knowledgeable - from the aides to the nurses and therapists - everyone was very helpful. The rooms were always clean. I enjoyed the people tremendously!”

“The nursing team was always cheerfully there as needed; and the physical and occupational therapists patiently brought me to a level that exceeded my expectation.

I feel ready to go home and continue my recovery.”
“I enjoyed working with the therapists and nurses. They all took good care of me and treated me like I was part of their family.
