NRI’s Complex Care Rehabilitation Program is designed to provide treatment for individuals whose brain injury requires rehabilitation services but are unable to sustain a full therapeutic treatment schedule due to medical complications and nursing care issues.
Patients in the Complex Care Rehabilitation Program participate in therapies that are similar to those provided in our other rehabilitation programs, but the degree of participation is modified according to the person’s tolerance to physical, cognitive and behavioral treatment.
With an eye toward balancing the physical and emotional needs of our patients with their rehabilitation treatment goals, medical and nursing care is carefully monitored and adjusted to maximize participation in the therapeutic program.
At NRI, our therapeutic programs are designed to assist individuals in achieving the highest level of rehabilitation possible—with the goal of reintegrating them back into the community and giving them the greatest degree of independence possible. To that end, NRI’s Complex Care Rehabilitation program offers a wide range of services designed to achieve this goal, including:
- Progressive physical strengthening and retraining
- Comprehensive and ongoing neuromotor and neuropsychological testing
- One-on-one assistance for daily activities like feeding, grooming, and mobility
- Intensive speech and occupational therapies
- Pain management
- Daily group therapies addressing the patient’s specific cognitive, social and physical needs
- Structured leisure time activities with assistance
EXPECTED OUTCOMES WITH COMPLEX CARE REHABILITATION
The families of patients with severe brain injuries often ask us what kind of outcomes they can expect during and after complex care rehabilitation. This is not a simple question to answer since all brain injuries are unique and each patient responds differently to therapy. However, at NRI, there are specific goals and milestones that we set for every patient, including:
- Maintaining medical stability.
- Attaining behavioral stability.
- Reduction in the need for intensive daily supervision.
- Regaining basic functions and skills such as mobility and speech.
- Initiating cognitive (learning) strategies and tools to replace lost functions, such as memory.
- Relearning socialization skills in order to interact with family and friends.
- Being able to participate in favorite activities and home life.
- Enjoying a quality of life in their home community
