The Healing Power of the Arts

Hebrew Rehabilitation Center provides long-term chronic care patients with expressive therapies to support their psychological, social, and emotional needs. Music, movement, and art modalities are used to restore verbal and nonverbal means of communication and self-expression. Our specially trained therapists work with a multidisciplinary team including geriatricians, psychiatrists, psychologists, social workers, rehabilitation therapists, nurses, and life enhancement specialists to develop treatment plans. Guided imagery and mindfulness meditation techniques are also used in treatment.

Treatment methods include individual and group sessions as well as specialized services to address:

  • Neurologic symptoms associated with neurological disorders such as stroke, Parkinson’s disease, and traumatic brain injury

  • Pain and anxiety

  • Cognitive and behavioral issues

  • Palliative and hospice needs
