Recreational Therapy is What We do


C Hope Health Services was founded on the principles of integrity, loyalty, accountability, and perseverance.  The founder of C Hope Health Services is Wesley Cornelius, who is a Certified Therapeutic Recreation Specialist (CTRS).  Wesley holds a Bachelor's of Science degree in Recreation Therapy from the University of Southern Mississippi and a Master's of Education degree in Instructional Technology from the University of West Georgia.  Being a CTRS, working in various healthcare settings and with individuals with disabilities, Wesley saw the need and wanted to fulfill a vision of educating and implementing Recreational Therapy services to individuals of any age or ability in a fun and creative way at home, in the community, or healthcare setting.

C Hope Health Services is passionate about Recreational Therapy, being that, "Recreational Therapy uses activity-based therapeutic interventions that individuals enjoy doing and therefore bring better outcomes and positive results than any other intervention or therapy that are available."

Since a CTRS is the qualified provider with providing Recreational/Activity Therapy in healthcare settings, C Hope Health Services offers consultation services for Long-Term Care Facilities, Mental and Behavioral Health providers, Adult Day Care Centers, Senior Centers, Physical Rehab centers, and secondary education school system special education programs to implement Recreational Therapy interventions and/or provide coaching and resources to other recreational/activity professionals.
