Exercisabilities strives to achieve our mission by providing lifelong access to highly skilled rehabilitation, adaptive exercise equipment, assistive technologies, adaptive recreation activities, work rehabilitation, nutrition and modified wellness services to all individuals despite any financial or insurance barriers. We provide our services across the lifespan from birth to 100+. Since its inception in 2011, the number of clients served has increased every year. In 2017, we are averaging 1200 visits per month. That is approximately 350 unique clients each month. We anticipate that we will continue to see increased growth. In 2018, we estimate that we will see at least 16% more client visits per month. This is in large part due to our move into our new 9,300 square foot building in March of 2017. We also continue to grow the amount of community partners that we team with to deliver our needed programs.
Our mission to inspire ALL individuals brings a large population of with low income and government funding. Nearly 70% of our clients have a government insurance including state Medicaid or Medicare. These government insurances limit the amount of therapy that an individual with chronic disease or disability can receive to a very minimal amount. The approved amounts do not provide for any maintenance or even lifelong intermittent rehabilitation care in the setting of often highly debilitating disorders. When approved, the government payment amounts are well below our cost to deliver the care. Because of this, most for profit rehabilitation and fitness centers do not see clients with disability or the aging senior due to their government insurance and the individual must go without any rehabilitation or movement exercise. This leads to increase in disability and risk to fall, lowered quality of life and independence, and eventually institutional living. Exercisabilities became a 501(c)3 nonprofit because we did not want to have to turn away this vast population of underserved. We want our participants to receive every service that is required to meet their goals of independence, recovery and return to work or community living, despite what insurance they have or their ability to pay privately. It is estimated that nearly 30,000 plus people in this area have a medical or physical disability. People of all ages and abilities should be able to access high quality rehabilitation, fitness/wellness, recreational opportunities and work rehabilitation that are adaptive and safe for their unique, individual needs.
