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 life 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 how to integrate their chronic illness into a healthy lifestyle.
Patients with diabetes may benefit from Cumberland’s unique “flex regimen” plan.
