Independence Square will provide patients an environment where they can relearn a variety of daily living skills, from climbing stairs or counting change correctly to ordering from a menu or pounding a nail. Also included in Independence Square will be a kitchen and bedroom where patients will become comfortable performing routine household tasks and where family members can participate in the healing process.

"Finding real-life solutions to daily challenges is at the heart of recovery," said Jackson. "Independence Square makes rehabilitation more realistic, more interesting and more effective. It includes ramps, curbs, steps, turnstiles, counters and a variety of floor surfaces, so patients can apply relearned motor and cognitive skills to negotiate a variety of challenges."

Jackson believes that this unique approach to rehabilitation also will offer physical and occupational therapists and speech language pathologists an "unprecedented opportunity to use the full range of their skills to help patients regain independent lives."
