Ithaca College Seeks Stroke Survivors for Rehabilitation Program

ITHACA, NY — Ithaca College’s Center for Life Skills invites individuals who have experienced a stroke to participate in its spring 2014 session.

Intended for individuals who have been discharged from a formal rehabilitation program but deem it necessary to continue post rehabilitation services to improve the quality of their everyday life, the session will run from Jan. 29 to May 2 and consist of approximately 10 hours of programming per week. The session will take place at Longview, 1 Bella Vista Drive, in Ithaca, and there is a fee.

The Center for Life Skills features a highly individualized goal-setting program provided by Ithaca College faculty and students from a variety of allied health disciplines, including occupational therapy, physical therapy, therapeutic recreation and speech-language pathology and audiology. These shared efforts focus on the integration of therapies to provide the best combination of services for each participant.

Participant outcomes may include increased strategies to facilitate communication, increased awareness of adaptive equipment, increased mobility and independence in self care, and identification of recreation interests.
