Family members play a crucial role in patient rehabilitation. By participating in family education, programs and support groups, your loved ones develop a sense of understanding and confidence in helping patients achieve their recovery goals. We encourage patients to take advantage of the numerous educational and support resources available, including helpful video presentations, links to useful websites, classes, and educational materials.
Art of Healing Program
Roper Rehabilitation Hospital is one of the first in the nation to offer Art of Healing. This wonderful program allows patients to choose the art that will be hung in their room to help inspire their recovery. All of the art has been donated by local artists and photographers.
Stroke Support Group
Roper Rehabilitation Hospital offers a stroke support meeting on the third Tuesday of the month. Family members and stroke survivors are offered training, a meal and support from other patients and caregivers for coping with life after a stroke.

The Rehabilitation Hospital offers a driving assessment program led by a Certified Driving Rehabilitation Specialist. This program helps to get patients back into driving safely and comfortably. The program includes computerized driving simulation and actual field driving in collaboration with A-Lord Ashley driving school. Adaptive driving equipment is available for trial and training.
