WONDERING WHAT TO BRING?
We do all we can to make a person’s experience with us as comfortable as possible, and we encourage participants to make us their home away from home. Patients may personalize their living space with familiar items that represent who they are or who they want to be. Music, books, photos, your favorite blanket – even small details can have a significant impact on a person’s recovery.
Here is a list of the basic necessities someone will need in our program:
- Two pieces of identification (such as social security card, birth certificate, driver’s license, state ID card, school ID or voter’s registration)
- Medications and prescriptions
- Adaptive equipment
- Health insurance card
- Documentation of guardianship (if guardianship is held by someone other than the patient)
- Toiletries (soap, shampoo, deodorant, razor, etc)
- Money for spending (for group activities in the community)
- Clothing that is comfortable and encourages movement for therapies as well as appropriate attire for activities in the community (examples include comfortable, loose-fitting shirts, athletic pants with an elastic waistband, athletic socks and shoes, etc)
- Pajamas, slippers, bathrobe
- Swimsuit and water shoes
- Outerwear for cold months (coat, hat, gloves)
