Using leisure as a treatment modality, patients utilize functional interventions such as leisure education and recreation participation to further develop, maintain and express an appropriate leisure lifestyle.
Therapeutic Recreation Specialists help the patient set goals for progress during hospitalization, plan and implement structured group programming and evaluate patient progress in meeting those goals prior to discharge using interventions such as creative expression, stress management and mindfulness techniques and clarifying patient’s leisure needs at home for continued exploration after hospitalization.
