We offer a range of programs for adults and children who have experienced orthopedic injuries, neurological and musculoskeletal disorders, stroke, trauma, amputations, arthritis, spinal cord dysfunction or brain injury.
We have key components to make your rehabilitation as successful as possible.
A significant part of rehabilitation therapy takes place in our treatment gyms. The layout of these gyms allows treatment teams to work collaboratively, responding more effectively to individual impairments and promoting functional activities. Special equipment is provided in a central location for each program, an arrangement that allows family mem¬bers to observe therapy and to work more closely with the treatment team.
New Horizons Square is the latest in rehabilitation tools designed to help people with disabilities make the transition to independent living. Made up of simulated community areas, the square provides a realistic environment where persons served can safely practice tasks that they will encounter when at home or in the community.
Sidewalks, streets and paths of various heights and textures connect reproductions of a bank, restau¬rant and market, and a real car sits outside of a life-like apartment. The square was designed to capture the look and feel of eastern North Carolina and contains many features common to the region, including a boat dock, putting green and a screened porch door.
The walls are decorated with realistic murals featuring a beach scene, golf course and the East Carolina University campus. New Horizons Square gives persons served a place to adjust and adapt to the challenges of everyday life.
For many people, the last stage in the journey to recovery is re-entering the community. Community-based activities are key to the rehabilitation process and address the social and emotional issues that face people returning to their families, jobs and their social life. Individuals gain confidence using functional skills and learn to deal with disability issues by participating in events outside the home and in real-life settings such as restaurants, shopping malls or even a football stadium.
Independent living suite
Our Independent Living Suite helps individuals regain functional independence in their daily activities. This suite gives persons served and their families the opportunity to practice the skills learned during rehabilitation in a realistic setting. The suite is adjacent to the Brain Injury and Spinal Cord Injury units. Participation in this real-life experience helps ensure a safe, comfortable transition from the hospital to home and helps identify where additional intervention is needed.
