The Convalarium of Dublin will host a “therapy reunion” for all graduates of the center’s comprehensive rehabilitation program from 6 to 9 p.m. on Thursday, Oct. 6, at 6430 Post Road in Dublin.
The goal of any effective physical, occupational, surgical or speech rehabilitation program is to return the patient to his or her previous level of function. But while undergoing in-residence therapy, staff members and patients become close to one another, which is why The Convalarium holds regular reunions.
All program graduates are invited to attend. For more information, call (614) 761-1188.
