The Rehabilitation Games Mark the End of National Rehab Week Celebration

Rehabilitation-Games-mark-the-end-of-National-Rehab-Week-CelebrationPatients got in on the action as Rehabilitation Institute of Chicago at Franciscan St. Anthony Health celebrated National Rehabilitation Week with a day of Rehabilitation Games on Sept. 26 in Michigan City. Inpatient Rehabilitation unit staff gathered patients for a morning of fun outdoor games that emphasized motions they typically practice during their regular physical, occupational and speech therapy sessions.

Patients played a game of Telephone where the phrase “Friday fun” was humorously turned into “This is the day the Lord has made and we should be glad” by the end of the chain. The exercise helped patients practice with speech, hearing and articulation.
