CARF Accredited WorkLife Programs

We provide two programs accredited by the, Commission on Accreditation of Rehabilitation Facilities (CARF): Work Conditioning and Work Hardening WorkLife (Industrial Rehabilitation).

Work Conditioning:
The work conditioning program is an individualized, measurable and supervised exercise program with a goal of progressing to gainful employment. The focus is to improve an individual’s overall tolerance and endurance for physical work capacity in the sub-acute stage of recovery.
Typically two to four hours per day for three to four days per week for a duration of  four to six weeks

Work Hardening:
The work hardening program is an individualized, comprehensive and multidisciplinary approach to restoring work-related function and returning an individual to gainful employment. Activities are focused on improving an individual’s overall activity tolerances, psychosocial well-being, vocational skills and physical work capacities. Task modification, physical conditioning, work simulation and education are the tools used to promote return to work.
Typically four to eight hours per day for five days per week for approximately six to 10 weeks
