Jewish Rehabilitation Hospital

Recreation Department

We offer leisure programming with the purpose of enhancing the client’s overall quality of life during rehabilitation as well as contributing to their optimal recovery. The programs are scheduled during the day and on some evenings of the week.

Philosophy

It is our philosophy that leisure and recreation are inherent aspects of the human experience. Therapeutic recreation is a process of utilizing recreation activities for intervention in physical, emotional, and/or social behavior to bring about a change which promotes the growth and development of the individual.

Objectives

  • Educate clients on the value of positive leisure;
  • Offer clients opportunities for active participation in individual or group leisure activities;
  • Provide clients with leisure tools and skills that can be incorporated after returning to their home.

Students & Research

We accept college and university students learning in the field of recreation that require fieldwork internships.

The recreation services participate in research in order to contribute to the development of the scientific knowledge of rehabilitation.
