Brain Injury Day Program
Acquired Brain Injury Day Program at Shepherd Pathways
Shepherd’s Brain Injury Day Program at Shepherd Pathways provides a continuation of recovery and rehabilitation for patients with brain injury who no longer require 24-hour nursing care. The full-day program continues the rehabilitation track from an inpatient program, or from the community, and provides ongoing assessment and therapeutic intervention.
Brain Injury Day Program Facility
Shepherd Center's Brain Injury Day Program takes place at Shepherd Pathways, a nearby facility in Decatur, Georgia. This facility offers a large open treatment space, innovative technology and access to nearby community re-entry opportunities.
Day Program services are provided five days per week and consist of individual and group-based treatments driven by patient-centered goals. Treatment is focused on community reintegration, which often means returning to home, work, school and leisure/recreation participation.
Our expert treatment teams are led by a physiatrist, who is a doctor specializing in physical medicine and rehabilitation (PM&R). Our multidisciplinary team of rehabilitation specialists includes a case manager, who works closely with patients and their support systems to help coordinate each patient’s individualized care with the rehabilitation team. The rehabilitation team may also include physical, occupational, speech and recreation therapists, a nurse, neuropsychologist, rehabilitation counselor, vocational specialist and exercise physiologist.
Our team approach aims to assist patients in rebuilding their lives with hope, independence and dignity, advocating for their full inclusion in all aspects of community life while promoting safety and injury prevention.
