This project focuses on the restoration of our aquatic therapy pool. The pool at the Charles R. Wood Aquatic Therapy Center at Prospect Center, a division of the Center for Disability Services, was rendered inoperable in January of 2018 due to a failed boiler and pool rooftop dehumidifier which has completely closed down our aquatic therapy program. The restoration has an estimated cost of over $100,000.00. The video above was filmed right before the pool became inoperable.
Aquatic physical therapy is an alternative to land-based physical therapy by providing therapeutic activities in water heated to 90 degrees. The warmth and buoyancy of the water reduces spasticity, alleviates chronic pain, and promotes relaxation, which is extremely beneficial to the individuals we serve. Warm water therapy also provides a medium for increasing range of motion, improving muscle strength, increasing endurance, and improving balance and coordination that lasts long after the therapy session is over.
Please help us get our students and adult program participants with disabilities back into our pool as soon as possible.Donate now by clicking the logo above! Every dollar matters! Thank you for your support of this project which will enrich the lives of the people we serve at Prospect Center and the Center for Disability Services!
