Rehabilitation Services

Our Philosophy

A disability can impact every aspect of life—from physical, emotional and psychological health to employment and relationships with family and friends.

At Lakewood Hospital, we believe the patient's abilities count as much as their disabilities. We provide goal-oriented interdisciplinary and comprehensive rehabilitation services that meet the physical, cognitive and communicative needs of persons with disabilities.

Cleveland Clinic Adult Driver and Rehabilitation Program

Adults who have experienced any physical, neurological, visual or cognitive change in function that has an impact on driving performance may benefit from a driving assessment. Our goal is to help individuals return to independent driving, as long as they are safe to do so.

The Cleveland Clinic Driver Evaluation and Rehabilitation Program provides a clinical and on-the-road assessment of driving skills, with recommendations to the client, family and physician.

Clinical Assessment Testing, determined by the National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB), includes:

  • Vision function
  • Visual perception
  • Cognitive function
  • Strength and range of motion
  • Reaction time

The on-the-road evaluation takes 45-60 minutes and is completed in a Cleveland Clinic vehicle adapted for driving evaluation.

We are here to help older drivers, their families and their physician through a difficult but important change in lifestyle.
