How do I get into the program?
Brain Rehab Network is committed to developing programs that support the continuum of recovery. The steps in the process are:
1. Obtaining a referral from your physician. Once received, our team will review your medical history and brain injury diagnosis, and other relevant information. Comorbid conditions will be reviewed on a case by case basis. If you're a referring provider click here to print and complete a referral form.
2. Once we have a referral, our Admissions Team will support you through the process of identifying your financial resources. Medicare guidelines don't include post-acute neurorehabilitation services. Some state Medicaid programs may allow for limited funding, contact your Medicaid specialist or caseworker.

What problems do you help people with?
No two brain injuries or two people are alike and we customize support plans to meet each person's needs. The symptoms and barriers each person experiences will vary however there are some common challenges survivors face. Below is a general list of those challenges:
Changes in thinking skills:
Memory, communication, problem-solving, making decisions, attention, concentration, judgment, and organization
Changes in physical abilities:
Balance, fine and gross coordination, ability to walk, sensations (vision, touch, etc), and the like
Changes in emotion and behavior:
Anger, irritability, mood swings, lack of motivation, impulsivity, and poor judgment to name a few
Changes in medical care needs:
We support the complex medical needs of each person and help to develop plans addressing medication management, scheduling appointments, transportation to appointments, and health-promoting activities
Are rehabilitation plans customized?
Yes, because no two brain injuries are alike and the course of rehabilitation is different for each person we customize rehabilitation plans. Timelines for recovery vary individually and we understand the return to home and work is an important part of the rehabilitation and healing process for the survivor (person) and family. Individuals progress through rehabilitation at the client's own pace assisted by unique rehabilitation programs implemented by staff. We want to grow and build toward a successful transition where people experience the highest degree of independence and quality of life.
