We believe family members are critical to a patient's rehabilitation.
Patients that feel encouraged and empowered are more successful. That’s why Craig believes in creating a dream-team of caregivers for each patient, and supplementing it with support from family and friends. Craig has no restrictions on visiting hours - families are encouraged to attend therapies and be part of the team. Counselors assist families with their adjustment to injury, understanding insurance policies, application for public benefits, community reintegration and discharge planning.
Graduates of Craig and their families consistently credit some of their success to what other patients and families have taught them. Friendships developed at Craig often last for life.
30 days of free housing is provided to families
Free wi-fi so family members can stay connected and keep working if needed
Our large group of patients with similar ages, backgrounds, and injuries are able to teach, support, and give hope to each other.
