Brain Injury Rehabilitation
The Brain Injury Association of America reports that more than 2.4 million adults and children sustain a traumatic brain injury, and over 795,000 experience a non-traumatic brain injury each year. These injuries impact the way patients speak, think and move. Studies show that proper treatment and rehabilitation makes a significant difference in a patient’s recovery.
At NeuLife, we know that every injury is different, and each patient faces their own unique set of challenges. This knowledge is the driving force behind our individualized approach to care. Our patients benefit from customized care plans and a clinical staff with more than 200 years of combined rehabilitation experience.
The brain injury rehabilitation program at NeuLife offers a full continuum of services for patients who have experienced a traumatic brain injury (TBI), non-traumatic/mild brain injury (MBI), and acquired brain injury (ABI) including a stroke. Our comprehensive program encompasses the unique needs of each patient and family. The team focuses on maximizing abilities, providing education, increasing mobility and preventing complications.
Brain injury rehabilitation at NeuLife is guided by an interdisciplinary team of clinical professionals and focuses on the individual needs and abilities of each patient.

Our brain injury rehabilitation program includes clinical evaluations, medical care and therapeutic activities that are customized to meet the goals, needs and abilities of each patient. By leveraging a variety of rehabilitation services, we are able to create an integrated approach focused on helping each patient recover activities of daily living skills (ADLs) with compensatory strategies and mobility aids to achieve a seamless transition into the community. Every component of the treatment plan is customized to the individual patient for guaranteed results.
Key components of our innovative treatments plans include caregiver education and involvement. Caregivers are invited to actively participate in the rehabilitation process. We recognize the physical and emotional impact family members face and we believe that a strong support system is critical. We are here for you and your loved ones.
Patients considering the brain injury rehabilitation program at NeuLife must be stabilized enough to actively participate in a full day of therapy. The length of stay varies according to the needs of each patient. Typically, patients at NeuLife are treated no less than four weeks. Data indicates that our patients experience significant functional gains during their stay and more than 87% of our patients with brain injuries were discharged home rather than another care setting.
