Care and Goals

Cumberland Hospital - Chronic Illness Care and Goals

Helping adolescents learn responsible self-care extends to everyday situations. By learning practical life skills, patients get a sense of control in their lives and a taste of independence. All patients are taught and have opportunities to practice realistic, independent living skills such as money management, household chores, time management, problem-solving and employment readiness.

Cumberland’s reality-based, functional approach helps patients learn to integrate their chronic illness into a healthy lifestyle.
