How Does the Day Program Assist in the Brain Injury Rehabilitation Process?
Shepherd Center TBI brain injury rehabilitation day program patients arrive each day to participate in facility-based training and re-integration training into the community. We work with both patients who live alone or with their families.
Patients and their therapists organize activities like grocery shopping, accessing transportation, dining out at local restaurants, and pre-vocational and vocational assessment. Our staff also provides counseling to help patients make a smooth transition to their communities, school or work.
Available Shepherd Center housing for day program patients is limited. Patients must live more than 60 miles from the Center to be considered for housing. Please discuss predetermined limits with your case manager.
