After a brain injury, everyone has unique challenges.  Some individuals often require specialized rehabilitation services that help them regain lost skills and abilities.  Cognitive and behavioral changes are common and problematic, and often impede rehabilitation if not treated on a timely basis.  Most skilled nursing facilities and community-based rehabilitation programs are not able to meet the demands necessary for therapeutic recovery following a brain injury due to a lack of education and experience in the field.  Until now, many individuals in need of specialized rehabilitation have had to travel to out-of-state locations, away from their families.

At Community NeuroRehab, we understand the changing needs of individuals at the different stages in their recovery as well as the cognitive, physical, behavioral, and psychosocial complications of brain injury.  We’ve created a unique program, designed specifically for individuals experiencing a variety of difficulties as a result of a brain injury.

We offer an individualized and intensive, person-centered approach to brain injury rehabilitation, where participants are treated with compassion, respect, and with full recognition of their dignity and individuality.  We focus on serving those with a brain injury who experience secondary conditions that may include:

  • Prolonged confusion with significant memory and learning problems
  • Difficulties with judgment and problem solving due to cognitive deficits
  • Frequent agitation and behavioral upsets
  • Seizure disorders and related behavioral difficulties
  • Disruption of sleep/wake cycles
  • Difficulty with attention, filtering and focusing
  • Emergence of mental health problems or exacerbation of pre-existing mental health or substance abuse issues
  • Other cognitive and behavioral problems that traditional rehabilitation programs are unable to effectively treat
Our community based, Intensive Rehabilitation Program supports participants as they become more independent with everyday activities of daily living and as they achieve greater freedom and independence.  Recovery is maximized by providing a wide range of services designed to achieve participant goals.  Services include:
  • A highly structured, supportive and professionally developed program
  • Supervision or assistance with daily activities such as eating, grooming, mobility and social re-entry
  • Prescriptive programming to maintain and advance gains made in rehabilitation
  • Structured leisure time activities
  • Internal case management
  • Behavioral programming
  • Cognitive therapy/Special education/Tutoring
  • Progressive physical strengthening and retraining
  • Vocational and educational services
  • Family counseling and training
  • Medical and medication management
  • Dietary and nutrition support/dietary specialists
  • Health and wellness management
Services Linkage can also be coordinated for the following:
  • Occupational therapy
  • Speech therapy

Our Intensive Rehabilitation Program provides services in residential homes designed to offer a safe, "real life" environment.  We believe that individuals with a brain injury can best generalize their gains into a community setting when they receive services in the community, thus promoting the reacquisition of daily living skills and the use of strategies that will maximize access to community living options.  Participants are fully informed about their health and medical condition and have the opportunity to participate in the planning of total care and treatment.  Each participant is encouraged and assisted, throughout the rehabilitation process, to exercise their rights and may voice grievances and recommend changes in policies and services.  Participants develop their skills with the assistance of program staff, a majority of whom are Certified Brain Injury Specialists (CBIS) or who are in process of certification (Academy of Certified Brain Injury Specialists).  Program staff are trained to deliver prescriptive programs that compliment traditional therapies, which are developed and monitored by licensed therapists.
