What we aim to solve

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

The Center is focused on engaging individuals of all ages with injuries and disabilities, adults with disabilities who are in need of vocational rehabilitation and job training, and adults for our water exercise classes. Our philosophy is that all persons with disabilities or injuries should have access to a comprehensive treatment program, an opportunity to work at a level appropriate to their skills, live in accessible/affordable housing, participate in recreation activities, have appropriate educational opportunities and thereby maximize their independence and contribution to the community.

Our programs

What are the organization's current programs, how do they measure success, and who do the programs serve?

Outpatient Therapy Program

Outpatient occupational, speech and physical therapy services are provided to individuals of all ages. Current referral data indicates that 60 percent of our adult clients and 41 percent of our pediatric clients are referred to Bay Area from Houston area physicians. Information provided in the 2017 Bay Area Rehabilitation Center Program Evaluation indicates that 36 percent of all clients reside in the Houston city limits.

Population(s) Served
People with disabilities

Research shows that growth and development occur most rapidly in a child's early years. Therefore, the earlier problems are identified, the greater the chance of them being minimized or eliminated. ECI provides services for children birth to three years of age who have developmental delays and disabilities. Children can qualify for ECI services based on developmental delay, or many medically diagnosed conditions. Services are provided in the child's natural environment to approximately 475 children in 24 zip code areas within the greater Houston area.

Population(s) Served
People with disabilities
Infants and toddlers

Our indoor warm water pool features a wheelchair ramp, lift chair, and traditional ladders and ramps. With a depth of 3 to 5 feet, even those who cannot swim or are afraid of water can rehabilitate comfortably and safely. Utilizing the physical effects and therapeutic benefits of water, our therapists design rehabilitation programs that are specific to a client's injury and desired functional level. Water exercise classes are available for a nominal fee, and Bay Area has collaborated with the Houston Area Parkinson's Society (HAPS) to provide aquatic exercise classes for any patient diagnosed with Parkinson's.

Population(s) Served
Seniors
Adults

Outpatient work rehabilitation services are provided to adults who need occupational and physical therapy services for injuries received in the workplace. Provided in a room designed to emulate the work processes (ladders, valves, etc.) that an injured worker will encounter, our goal is to return the injured employee back to work as soon as it possible for them to safely handle the demands of their respective job. Pre-work screenings are also provided to companies for prospective employees to ensure that the person they are considering for hire can safely handle the demands of the job.

Population(s) Served
People with disabilities
Adults

The Opportunity Center Program provides adults with disabilities site-based services, day habilitation, vocational training, home community services, and job placement. The benefit resulting from each of the various areas is that it provides participants with social, life, and vocational skills. These skills allow participants to obtain a sense of empowerment, and to succeed socially in the community.

Unemployed people

Patsy's Destiny is a wheelchair accessible recreational area located on approximately 9 acres of land donated to Bay Area by Dave and Beth Swalm. Patsy's Destiny features a wheelchair accessible playground superstructure where pediatric aged clients can receive their therapy services in a format that provides a more positive therapy environment.

As part of the 75th Anniversary of Bay Area Rehabilitation Center, the Center has initiated a funding campaign for the purpose of expanding and improving Patsy's Destiny. The three-phase project will include expanding the current play area with the addition wheelchair accessible playground equipment and playground equipment meant to meet the needs of other individuals with disabilities in Phase One. Phase Two will add shade to the playground. Phase Three will add a wheelchair accessible concrete fitness trail with ourdoor exercise equipment to meet all needs.

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

• Restore/enable each client’s physical or mental function to his or her maximum potential
• Educate client and family regarding future care concerns, vocational potential and community resources that may be available
• Assist clients in being productive and contributing members of the community
• Provide professional services in a warm and courteous atmosphere
• Advocate and promote quality of life and independence for all
• Operate as a community resource for health care and vocational services, applying sound business practice
• Serve as a community resource on disability awareness and injury prevention
• Collaborate with medical staff, schools and the community in a teamwork approach to providing services
• Promote quality of life, independence and diversity for all

We are working to take our existing resources—personnel, facilities, grant and earned revenues, as well as reputation—to leverage the resources available to our clients, such as time, limited insurance funding, etc, to provide for the best care possible while at the same time preventing additional financial strain on the client. Through our collaborative work with other providers and resources in the community we are able to generate sufficient funds and resources that will enable a client to come in with little or no resources, yet still be able to receive the level of care needed to reach the intended goals of the client.

Throughout the history of the Center we have worked to gain access to any and all possible resources available to enable the ongoing care of our clients. Through our historical, and ongoing relationships within the community we were able to develop a facility that carries little to no debt, develop strong relationships with the local United Way organizations, and nurture and sustain a positive image in the community. In developing the organization in such a way, rather than work to build up and maintain the organization on a daily basis, we are able to focus on providing services to our clients as well as utilize any funds generated through operations for the benefit of our clients.

All of the programs at Bay Area Rehabilitation Center have made improvements in 2017. These improvements include:

(1) Compliance with organizational and regulatory timelines.
(2) Enhanced marketing efforts via more fluid website activity as well as an improved Facebook and social media presence.
(3) Significant capital replacements have occurred within the aquatics facility environmental control systems.

Focus areas for 2018 include:

(1) Continue to enhance the community's knowledge regarding the variety of services offered and outcomes achieved.
(2) Evaluate capital options that result in long-term, cost efficient and sustainable improvements to the facilities of the Center.
(3) Investigate, develop, and implement one major area of program expansion for each organizational program.
(4) Investigate and develop long-term funding strategies to help ensure the continual financial stability of the Center.
