Are You Our National Rehab Awareness Week Poster Winner?
Each year, thousands of rehabilitation providers, including skilled nursing and assisted living facilities, join together during the third week in September to celebrate the powers of rehabilitation and share the message that through rehab there is hope, achievement and success.
At Ascend Rehab, along with our partners at CareOne, CareVirginia, and HealthBridge Management, National Rehabilitation Awareness Week allows us to focus our attention on each patient’s capabilities rather than disabilities; and increase awareness of the tremendous power and impact of physical, occupational, and speech therapy. More than 6,500 rehab facilities and health and human services care providers joined us in celebration this year on September 21st – 27th.
One of the exciting and unique initiatives we incorporated was a National Rehab Awareness Poster competition. Each CareOne, CareVirginia, and HealthBridge Management center had the opportunity to design a poster that they believe captures the essence of Rehab from both an advocacy as well as a clinical education perspective. We are proud to announce the contest’s first place winner: Somerset Valley Rehabilitation And Nursing Center! Their creative poster has been featured on the Ascend Rehab website as well as all of our social media sites and has been distributed to all of the CareOne, CareVirginia, and HealthBridge Management centers where it will be used to promote awareness of rehabilitation.
