Carf Accreditation

NeuLife Rehabilitation is accredited by the Commission for Accreditation of Rehabilitation Facilities (CARF) in Brain Injury Specialty Programs and Residential Rehabilitation – the “gold seal” of rehabilitation practice. This is a reflection of the proven outcomes we continuously achieve through evidence-based practice.

We provide comprehensive rehabilitation programs and community integrated rehabilitation services that are tailored to each patient and promote an improved quality of life. We leverage innovative techniques and state-of-the-art equipment to restore functional independence and achieve a seamless transition home.

Measuring Outcomes
Upon admission, each patient is evaluated to establish a baseline score and develop customized goals. Each week our interdisciplinary team reviews the progress and barriers for each patient and adapts care plans accordingly. Upon discharge, a final score is generated, allowing us to measure functional gain from admission to discharge.

Patient Demographics

It is the mission of NeuLife as an organization to provide a comprehensive program of neurologic rehabilitation to support and promote the improvement of the quality of life for our patients. At NeuLife, our innovative techniques to restoring function and increasing independence can help individuals in multiple areas of daily and community living so the transition home is as successful as possible. Out of 119 patients treated at NeuLife, 97 were men and 22 were women. The average age is 44 for men and 43 for women.

Functional Gains

This measurement details the functional improvement from admission to discharge based on diagnosis. We use two nationally recognized measurement tools to measure functional gain.

Functional Independence Measure (FIM)®
FIM® allows us to identify the severity of patient disability and track functional gains during care.

Mayo-Portland Adaptability Inventory (MPAI)®
MPAI® assists in the clinical evaluation of acquired brain injuries (ABI) and represents a range of physical, cognitive, emotional, behavioral and social challenges that patients may encounter.

  • Brain Injury: 81%
  • Spinal Cord Injury (SCI): 76%
  • Other Diagnosis: 82%

Outcomes

Discharge

NeuLife patients experience significant functional gains during their care. In fact, most of our patients are discharged home successfully from our facility.

100% of our patients with amputations, strokes and orthopedic injuries were discharged home.

86% of our brain injury patients were discharged to a home setting compared to a national average of  75%.

72% of our spinal cord injury patients were discharged home.
