Brain Injury Rehabilitation Program
Traumatic Brain Injury Programs at Shepherd Center
Shepherd Center strives to offer comprehensive rehabilitation to optimize the road to recovery for people who have had a brain injury. Thus, we provide a variety of programs that are tailored to individual needs and case-by-case requirements for the best possible recovery.
Our 58-bed, secured care units are home to a program that treats not only brain injury but also patients with stroke and diagnoses including tumors, encephalitis and anoxia. We also have specialized programs for adolescents recovering from brain injury.
Shepherd Center's Disorders of Consciousness (DOC) Program provides a short-term three-to-five-week program for patients who are semi-comatose or minimally conscious. In this program, patients receive one and a half hours of therapy daily.
Adolescents differ from adults who have sustained a brain injury. This program treats adolescents who sustain a brain injury by meeting their developmental and emotional therapy needs.
Shepherd Center's Day Program continues recovery and rehabilitation for patients with brain injury who no longer need 24-hour nursing care.
Shepherd Center’s post-acute program includes a residential component in a local community setting for people with brain injury who have completed their inpatient program and are ready to live in the community, but still need 24-hour support.
