Carol-Ann Nelson, Adventure Based Rehab
Date grant awarded: June 5, 2016
Destination Rehab is adventure based rehabilitation for people with neurologic disabilities, based in Bend, Oregon. They take their participants into the community to practice real-life skills while enjoying challenging outdoor activities. Greater confidence, community integration, and quality of life are achieved through functional training in shared public spaces. Participants are challenged to learn physical and communication skills that break down barriers between them and new experiences, adventures and a fuller richer life.
