Brain injury presents unique problems for individuals in the area of leisure activity.  Often, persons with brain injury experience isolation and a sense of loss.  Therapeutic Recreation works with patients to achieve a healthy leisure lifestyle using safe, productive ways to spend their time in order to make life more fulfilling and rewarding. Patients are assisted with structuring their leisure time in order to maintain or improve their quality of life.

Patients are seen in a community setting on a weekly basis, where their skills such as social interactions, cognitive functioning, initiation and functional ability in the community can be assessed in the context of leisure activity.  Aquatic therapy is utilized weekly and offers patients an opportunity to recreate in a group setting while at the same time they are addressing therapeutic activities such as stretching, mobility, range of motion, socialization and endurance.
