An injury to the brain can be complicated and life-altering. No other type of injury impacts so dramatically and simultaneously on a person's physical, cognitive, emotional, and social functioning and ability to participate in everyday activities. Because of this, an interdisciplinary treatment team that works together toward common goals and offers a wide range of rehabilitation services is critical in helping a person return to the highest level of functioning possible.
Depending on the severity of the injury, rehabilitation is focused on helping the person return to home, community, and work activities or on preparing for an alternative living environment offering supervision, care and continuing treatment. Special Tree's caring, experienced staff help each person increase and maintain functional skills to access a wide range of activities in the community.
Special Tree brain injury rehabilitation is available in a variety of settings including the NeuroCare Center inpatient program for persons with continuing medical or nursing needs. For persons requiring extended treatment in a supervised setting, Community Residential Living may be more appropriate. Supported living offers greater independence in one of our private apartments or for families, transitional housing is often arranged. Outpatient and Home and Community Based services are also available for persons living in their own homes.
Persons participating in brain injury rehabilitation may also enjoy participating in Special Tree's Day Treatment, or may benefit from vocational services.
