What To Bring With You
It is important to have clothes that fit properly, that allow for ease of movement and that allow for modesty while exercising (sweatsuits, pants - not dresses). A bathing suit and/or shorts may also be necessary for some therapy sessions. Allow enough clothing for a week.
Bring shoes not slippers, preferably rubber-soled, which prevent slipping (running or walking shoes). If you do not already own rubber-soled shoes, wait to talk with the physical therapist following your admission. He or she will provide some consumer tips.
Your own toilet articles, such as toothbrush, hairbrush, comb, deodorant, razor, soap, tissue should be included in the items you bring with you. Bring any hobbies or recreational materials.
Any electrical articles that you bring with you such as a television, radio, razor, etc. will be checked and labeled by the Security Department before use. (You may choose to label your articles at home before you bring them to WRC). We prefer electric razors if you are unable to shave yourself.
Bring any specialized equipment that you currently use, such as wheelchairs, slings, walkers, braces, crutches, canes or splints.
Please do not bring valuable items, such as jewelry or credit cards. We ask that you bring only a small amount of money on the Unit. The maximum recommended is $20. Cash in excess of this amount should be deposited in a trust account in our Finance Office. You are able to deposit or make withdrawals from your trust account in the Finance Office during business hours, Monday to Friday, 8:00 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.
Please bring any medications that you are taking. It is helpful if medications are in the original container so we are sure of the correct name and dosage.
All medication brought with you will be safely stored and returned to you upon discharge, unless it is possible to send it home earlier.
