Locations: St. David's Round Rock Medical Center and St. David's Rehabilitation Hospital
The St. David's Day Program is designed for patients who no longer require 24-hour nursing care. These patients continue their recovery and rehabilitation while spending half days in a therapeutic environment.
Services focus on the functional return of skills necessary for community reintegration. Services you may need include physical or occupational therapy, nursing care, respiratory therapy, counseling sessions, therapeutic recreation and educational classes. Depending on your goals, you may require these services for a few days or a few weeks.
The Day Program also helps minimize the risk of further medical complications that are secondary to the neurological injury or illness. Returning home or to work or school may be stressful. The following programs and services ease the transition:Medical Care
Our nursing care continues in the day program and may include care for neurogenic bowel and bladder, spasticity, blood pressure, blood clots, contractures, strength and mobility issues.Return-to-Work Counseling
You may or may not be able to return to the same type of work you did before your injury. Our counselors will help you find a job or career that is right for you.Back-to-school training
