Programs Geared Toward Functional Independence
Craig Hospital offers a number of programs and classes for patients aimed at maximizing independence, like driving and adaptive transportation, community reintegration, and assistive technlogy.
Family support is an important component of rehabilitation at Craig Hospital. We offer a wide variety of programs specifically designed to support families, including housing for outpatients and families of inpatients, either in our on-site family housing facility or in a nearby hotel. First priority for the on-site housing suites is given to our outpatients. For families of newly injured rehabilitation inpatients who live more than 60 miles from Denver, we offer up to thirty days at no charge. If no on-site unit is available, we will provide housing in a nearby hotel. After thirty days, housing is available at a discounted rate on-site or at a nearby hotel depending on availability.
Between 2010 and 2014, Craig Hospital’s overall average of 91% discharges directly to home following rehabilitation greatly exceeded the national average. Home placement results in superior long-term functional patient outcomes and savings. Our clinical management staff work closely with patients and their families to make sure that they have their needs met upon returning home, including home adaptations, assistant needs, medications and doctors visits.
