Recently, Arbour-HRI Hospital has expanded its spectrum of inpatient services by adding art therapy, occupational therapy and animal-assisted therapy and promoted music therapy in its treatment plans for hospital residents.
Katie Sorbo has been hired to run the art therapy program. Sorbo has an MS in Art Therapy and Counseling. She runs her groups one day a week. Carol Johnson was hired to run the occupational therapy groups. She works with clients on ADL, coping skills and sensory perception one day a week. The music therapy is run by current staff members three days a week, and Caring Canines comes on the weekends with two dogs to spend time with the patients. All four therapies occur on all inpatient units.
