Adaptive Wellness

The most critical time for an individual’s recuperation is when he or she returns home from the hospital.  At the Y, we provide individuals the support, guidance and resources needed to achieve greater health and well-being in spirit, mind and body.

Brooks Rehabilitation is proud to offer several different adaptive wellness programs in partnership with the Y.  Each program is designed to help those with mobility impairments through supervised physical activity.  Through these programs, participants learn how to stay active and improve their health after they complete their formal physical therapy.

Each program requires a registration.  All programs require a referral and a diagnosis specific evaluation from a Brooks neuro physical therapist.  The evaluation is sent to the staff that oversees the program.  You will then complete an orientation and receive a customized and supervised exercise plan based off of your goals and needs.  Programs are created for each participant by rehab experts from Brooks Rehabilitation Hospital in collaboration with Y Staff.  Participants are asked to check in at the Welcome Center before attending a class.  The diagnoses we serve in this program are Stroke, Brain Injury, Parkinson’s Disease, and Multiple Sclerosis.

Adaptive Community Wellness
