Welcome To Origami

 

At Origami, we work hard to foster a comfortable, supportive environment where everyone feels welcome. The beginning of the rehabilitation process can feel overwhelming for both clients and loved ones. We're here to support you each step of the way and ensure a smooth and enjoyable experience. Whether you're planning to stay or visit our campus, you may have questions about what to expect. We've answered some of our most common questions below. For additional questions, contact us!

Visitors

We understand the importance of partnering in care and having family and friends close during the rehabilitation process. Together we work as a team, focusing on maximizing recovery. 

Balance is important during the rehabilitation process. In order for our clients to get the rest they need, we suggest these general visiting hours:

9am–9pm daily

To contact someone in our residential program, you may call our office at 517-336-6060 or send mail to:

At Origami, we strongly encourage family and friends to be active participants in the recovery of their loved one. This philosophy means that clients have the choice of inviting visitors to join therapy sessions, attend groups, and participate in family conferences.

Consult your Care Coordinator prior to bringing in any food. Many clients require special diets for health reasons or because of swallowing restrictions. Our specialists will provide education on appropriate foods for someone on a special diet.

Please check in at a reception desk. Once you've reached the client's room, knock and announce yourself before entering. Please keep noise levels in mind while visiting.

Children are welcome to visit as long as they are healthy and free of infectious diseases. This includes runny nose, cough, and fever. Please make sure children are properly supervised at all times. If you are unsure if a visit is appropriate, please contact your Care Coordinator for guidance.
