Intensive Treatment
Brain injury rehabilitation is an intensive therapy program. Therapy services include: physical, occupational, speech and recreation. A person in the brain injury rehabilitation center will receive therapy services 4-5 hours per day. Full therapy staffing is available Monday through Friday, with partial staffing on Saturdays and Sundays. Activities programming including art and music therapy is provided 7 days per week.

Physical Therapy
The Physical Therapy team focuses on functional mobility. Individuals with a brain injury are often unable to move all or parts of their bodies. A physical therapist will work closely with the individual to improve movement or develop and teach alternative methods of moving, while helping them to gain strength and balance.

Occupational Therapy
An Occupational Therapist will address an individual's life skills including activities of daily living that encompass self-care, cooking, home management, shopping, transportation and socialization. Individuals will relearn how to do these activities or learn new ways of accomplishing them.

Speech Language Therapy
A Speech-language Pathologist will work one-on-one with patients to regain functional communication. They will also provide therapy that improves swallowing and methods for communicating if an individual has a hearing impairment or cognitive challenge.

Recreation Therapy
The Recreation Therapy staff will provide treatment, education and recreation services to help patients develop and use their leisure in ways that enhance their health, functional abilities, independence, and quality of life. Patients will participate in leisure activities in a community setting on a weekly basis, where their money management skills, social interactions, cognitive functioning, initiation and functional ability to travel safely in the community can be assessed.
