Our Intensive Rehabilitation Program operates from our Oneida Point location in Southwest Des Moines and our Ashworth location in West Des Moines.
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:
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.
