Areas of Need

Unrestricted gifts are the lifeblood of the hospital. These gifts enable Gaylord to respond to areas of greatest need and maintain and expand its programming and clinical excellence.

Additionally, there are several items on our Therapy Wish List which gets updated quarterly. Items on this list help various departments purchase the equipment or technology to advance patient care or clinical outcomes but are not always covered in the budget or reimbursable through insurance. Your gift helps us put the right tools in the hands of our staff to make great care possible. If there is something of interest on the list, please email tknapp@gaylord.org or call (203) 284-2838 to discuss next steps.

Additional Areas of Need


Founded in 1995 to provide adaptive sports and recreation programs to adults with physical disabilities in the state of Connecticut and throughout the Northeast. The Sports Association provides the instruction, adaptive equipment and opportunity to participate in over a dozen sports for persons with spinal cord injuries, amputations, strokes, acquired brain injuries, and other physical disabilities. It is a member of Disabled Sports USA and a Paralympic Sport Club. In addition to 12 sport programs ranging from Archery and cycling to the waterskiing, it supports three competitive teams:

  • CT Jammers Quad Rugby Team
  • CT Hornets Wheelchair Tennis Team
  • WolfPack Sled hockey team

Its annual budget is over $100,000 and is funded solely by donor gifts, grants and income from special events. Learn more about the Sports Association.

SAVE stands for Sports Association Veteran Events. These events are only for disabled veterans and offer veterans a chance to participate in adaptive sports and recreation activities. Any member of the Armed Forces who has been injured can participate. A favorite is the yearly fishing tournaments on Candlewood Lake and the Connecticut River.

Family presence is critical to the patient’s rehabilitation. The Crockett house is a bungalow located on the hospital grounds that families can rent. The house includes two bedrooms, full bath, kitchen, dining room and living room. Gifts help to refresh both the decorations and furnishings of the house for optimal comfort.

Therapeutic recreation is a therapy modality that uses recreation activities to address rehabilitation goals and promote a healthy leisure lifestyle. Offerings include gardening therapy, artistic expression such as painting and basketry, and movie nights. Therapeutic recreation staff also provide musical CDs, DVDs, and game stations for patients to enjoy in their rooms. Our therapy staff are also certified to provide Reiki therapy. There is no third-party reimbursement for services provided for inpatient or outpatient groups. Gifts to this program allow for a more personal experience while recuperating.

Gaylord’s Residential Program for stroke and traumatic brain injury patients can provide a vital link in transitioning back to independent life. Program participants live in the Louis D. Traurig House, Connecticut’s only transitional living center for patients with a stroke or TBI. Traurig House offers an intimate, home-like setting for up to 8 residents for a 4 to 6 week course of treatment. Traurig House is located on the Gaylord Hospital campus, which allows residents access to the individualized outpatient therapies needed to successfully transition from hospital to home. Gifts to this program can help underwrite community reintegration activities such as movie nights or trips to the museum. It also helps to keep the house current with new furnishings and fixtures.
