Recreational Therapy


At Brooks, we approach your rehabilitation from every possible angle. Recreational therapy is a unique discipline that uses recreation as a therapeutic tool to help you regain as much independence as possible, returning you to an active life that includes recreation and leisure activities.

If requested by your referring physician, the therapeutic recreation specialist provides programs within the hospital, community re-entry outings and special events. Patients can attend movie nights, play games, do ceramics and learn plant care. Outings might include going to a grocery store, eating at a restaurant or attending a special event. Programs are composed of both group and individual sessions, depending on your individual needs.
