The Mobility Program provides a unique opportunity targeting individuals in the community with permanent physical disabilities. This program looks to help bridge the gap of inpatient/outpatient rehabilitation and continuing daily physical activity. It is designed to meet the specific needs of each individual to help improve and maintain the ability to function independently.
What Do We Do?
The program focuses on improving the overall physical health and functional ability of the individual by increasing and improving range of motion, strength, cardiovascular function, balance and stability, in turn, preventing future ailments that may occur. The services we provide include:
- Individual personal training
- Group Exercise classes
- In-Home training sessions
- Staff/Caregiver training sessions
Each personalized workout routine is tailored to the specific needs and goals of the individual and may take place in the both the facility’s pool and/or gym. Group exercise classes are also held in both the pool and gym.
Who Can Join?
This program is open to anyone living with a permanent disability who needs support such as wheelchairs or other assistive devices to move from one place to another. We currently help, but are not limited to, individuals with:
- Cerebral Palsy
- Spinal Cord Injuries
- Visual Impairment
- Multiple Sclerosis
To help cover the expense of the program, we currently get funding from:
- Medicaid Waiver
- Mobility Private Pay
Members who qualify for Medicaid Waiver are able to apply to have their sessions paid for. We also use donations received from the Mobility Program Fund to assist individuals unable to use waiver or cover the costs themselves. We hope to also obtain future funding through grants to help assist with the expense as well.
How Can I Help?
Because this program falls under health prevention, it is not billable for insurance. Members are unable to receive services because they simply cannot afford them. Because of this, we have created a Mobility Program Fund in which all donations help to assist with cost of exercise sessions as well as assistive equipment used for the population. Your donation is 100% tax deductible and makes it possible for community members with disabilities to develop independence, confidence and fitness through physical activity.
