Turnstone Adds Onsite Recreation Therapy to Programs and Services for People of All Ages

Fort Wayne, Indiana (March 4, 2021) – Turnstone Center has announced the addition of recreation therapy to its comprehensive programs and services for children and adults with disabilities. Recreation therapy services are available to people of all ages and will take place exclusively onsite at Turnstone’s campus.

Recreation therapy benefits children and adults with physical, intellectual, and developmental disabilities and can be used independently or to complement existing therapy and treatment plans. Among many other benefits, personalized approaches help support therapy goals, increase independence, discover new ways to navigate a disability, and practice social interactions.

“There is a wide spectrum of benefits from participating in Recreation Therapy, but the fundamental benefit is finding new ways to work towards your goals,” said Luke Morgan, Turnstone Chief Program Officer. “Through therapeutic recreation, we can provide individuals with skills to grow physically, mentally, emotionally, and socially by exploring a variety of leisure interests and therapeutic activities.”

Turnstone’s onsite recreation therapy can minimize transportation needs and maximize the time available for physical activities, social engagements and expanding leisure interest opportunities. Indoor and outdoor recreation therapy activities available at Turnstone include, but are not limited to:

  • Aquatics
  • Adaptive Sports
  • Fitness
  • Daily Living Skills
  • Social Skills Training
  • Leisure Education
  • Cognitive Rehabilitation
  • Sensory Stimulation Activities and more.

With recreation therapy provided at Turnstone, clients have access to the largest array of services and resources all under one roof. With a collaborative staff available at Turnstone, clients can also pursue dual-therapy with recreation therapy sessions actively working towards goals in tandem with other therapies.

To qualify for Turnstone Center’s recreation therapy services individuals should have either the Community Integration and Habilitation Waiver or Family Support Waiver.

To inquire about recreation therapy services, please call (260)483-2100, or email kathy@turnstone.org.
