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