The Meditation Room, located on the Ground Floor of Reading Hospital Rehabilitation at Wyomissing, is a quiet space where patients and their family members can go when they need a moment away from distractions.
Patients and visitors are encouraged to use the room for the purpose of prayer, meditation, visits with clergy, and private conversations between family and medical staff.
The room is appointed with comfortable seating and includes an adjustable lighting and sound system. Reflective reading materials are available. The room is open 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
The Therapeutic Garden offers a serene location where patients can relax and meditate in an outdoor setting. Physical rehabilitation activities can occur in the garden whenever the climate permits patients to be outdoors. Different landscaped surfaces create opportunities for patients to practice new skills in a beautiful setting:
- Occupational therapists may suggest watering and pruning activities to help meet patient goals
- Speech pathologists may suggest the garden for cognitive and communication treatments
- Recreational therapists may use the garden to help patients increase strength and endurance, mobility, focus, and memory.
The garden can also encourage use of adaptive strategies and development of new leisure interests.
