Inpatient TBI Rehabilitation

Following a brain injury, clients can experience mild, moderate or severe motor dysfunction, visual impairments, cognitive/communication deficits, and/or a loss of basic skills that result in loss of independence. Our interdisciplinary team offers specialized, evidenced based rehabilitation in behavioral intervention, motor recovery, cognitive/communication rehabilitation, community re-integration and family support to include education and training.

Family members are an integral part of client recovery following brain injury; therefore, our dedicated clinicians are here to provide extensive education and training to better equip you in handling the unique challenges of brain injury post discharge. Social work staff will assist you and your loved one in preparing for discharge into the community, seeking out community resources, and navigating our continuum of care to access our specialized outpatient services.
