Collaborative Approach: Technology & Treatment Protocol at NeuLife

Functional outcomes remain at the core of virtually all rehabilitation programs. In the last decade the focus of rehabilitative care has shifted toward quality of life with programs designed to help patients regain the skills necessary to achieve the highest quality of life possible.

NeuLife Rehabilitation, a residential post-acute rehabilitation facility in Mount Dora, Florida, utilizes a treatment approach that may seem unconventional. However, their outcomes-driven therapies are continuously achieving results. The facility, which is accredited by the Commission on Accreditation of Rehabilitation Facilities (CARF) in Brain Injury Specialty Programs and Residential Rehabilitation, believes its community-integrated treatment programs help it deliver care that is on the cutting edge of an evolution in neuro rehabilitation.

Planning is at the core of these processes. Before patients are admitted to the facility, a clinical nurse liaison performs a thorough pre-admission evaluation to gauge the level of treatment needed. Once admitted, a series of comprehensive patient evaluations are conducted and the patient’s medical history is reviewed by the interdisciplinary team of clinicians. The team then compiles the information to develop an individualized and multi-disciplinary treatment plan and establish goals for discharge.

NeuLife Celebrates Brain Injury Awareness Month

In honor of Brain Injury Awareness Month, NeuLife expands Supported Living Program.

NeuLife Supported Living Program 300x188 - NeuLife Celebrates Brain Injury Awareness MonthMOUNT DORA, FL, March 1, 2017– As an industry leader in brain injury rehabilitation, NeuLife brain injury facility is dedicated to raising awareness of traumatic brain injury (TBI). This year, NeuLife celebrates Brain Injury Awareness Month by announcing the expansion of their Supported Living Program, as part of an expanded service offering.

According to the Brain Injury Association of America, nearly 1.7 million people sustain a brain injury in America each year. While most people who experience a brain injury are able to return to their daily lives, at least 125,000 are left permanently disabled as a result of their TBI. The Supported Living Program at NeuLife is a temporary (respite care) option or a permanent living solution for patients with brain and other neurologic injuries who aren’t able to safely return home.

“While the effects of a brain injury may not be physically apparent, they are continuously challenging the individual and family unit,” said Lydia Hendrix, COO at NeuLife. “Often times, despite best efforts, brain injured individuals are unable to safely live alone or have the necessary 24/7 care and support. Our supported living program is designed to ease those challenges and provide each patient with the tools and opportunities to live a fulfilling and independent life.”
