Model of Care

OUR MODEL: MULTI-DISCIPLINARY AND HOLISTIC FAMILY CENTERED CARE

CRIT’s model of care serves children from birth to 18+ years of age with neurological, muscular and skeletal disabilities through comprehensive rehabilitation, promoting their maximum functional potential and inclusion in society, while recognizing and safeguarding the dignity of the person. Our innovative model of care recognizes that a person with a disability requires a holistic approach, not just traditional medical rehabilitation, and provides a comprehensive individualized treatment plan consisting of four pillars including extensive family education and training.

Pillars of our model of care:

  • Physical: Comprehensive rehabilitation encompassing physicians, therapists and medical care to address daily physical challenges.
  • Psychological: Treatment to address the psychological wellness of patients and families.
  • Social: Focus on societal inclusion of children and families.
  • Spiritual: Multi-denominational programs that promote and strengthen human values.
