Exceeding the Standard

Weekly Support Groups
Sprenger encourages patients to seek support & connect with others who have experienced a similar life journey. Our amputee support group meets weekly at Autumn Aegis Retirement Community. Please contact 440-989-5395  for more information or to RSVP. For a list of current meetings, visit our events page.

Community Reintegration Program
Our therapists take patients on community outings, which include trips to church, restaurants and shopping venues to ensure they are able to perform these tasks independently before graduation from their therapy regimen.

Home Safety Assessments
It is our pleasure to evaluate the safety of your residence before your graduation from our therapy department.

This complimentary, comprehensive assessment is performed by our therapy team who may identify any modifications and repairs necessary to ensure a safe living environment. Our goal is to reduce, or ultimately prevent, accidents upon your return home.

Therapists may also evaluate the need for adaptive equipment to help in areas of concern or recommend community support services that can provide further assistance.
