VA Palo Alto Health Care System
Recreation Therapy Service - Welcome Center
The 10,000 square-foot Welcome Center at the Menlo Park Division provides clinical and holistic services in a state-of-the-art facility. The services offered improve functional levels, promote optimal wellness, facilitate community reintegration, and enhance quality of life.
The center actively supports the programmatic needs of Veterans and includes non-traditional modalities, which incorporate art therapy, music therapy, recreation therapy, service dog training, compensated work therapy opportunities, and centralized computer access (for provision of job opportunities and community resource development).
It is a gateway for informing and guiding Veterans, families, and community stakeholders navigating the Menlo Park campus.
