About Traurig

Residential Program

When a person has completed inpatient rehabilitation yet has lingering language, physical, or cognitive
impairment, the eight-bed, co-ed Traurig House provides an educational bridge to ease the patient from
the hospital to home. Traurig offers a warm, welcoming, home-like setting with specialized programs
supporting daily living skills. Residents can expect to work on social skills, medication education,
cooking, laundry, recreation activities and enjoy a sense of community and camaraderie. An highlight for
graduates is the annual Traurig House picnic in September where alums can return, revisit and
reconnect with one another and staff.

Therapy Program

To maximize their mobility, communication, and thinking skills residents of Traurig House participate in
five days a week outpatient therapy on the Wallingford campus. Their participation in physical,
occupational, and speech therapy aids the transition to home and independent living. Residents
participate in groups, Aphasia Day Treatment, and Cognitive Day treatment programs and have
psychology, neuropsychology, and counseling services available. Residents also participate in
Community Out trips which help them navigate the complexities of community life in a safe and
supportive environment. Examples include planning and executing trips to the bank, a museum, grocery
shopping, or a movie theater.
