Brain Injury Residential Program
Acquired Brain Injury Rehabilitation at Shepherd Pathways
Shepherd Center’s post-acute Residential Program at Shepherd Pathways provides a safe and therapeutic environment in a structured, home-like atmosphere. This setting allows patients to practice carryover of functional living skills from therapy to prepare for a successful transition back to their homes and communities. The Brain Injury Residential Program is licensed through the state of Georgia and is accredited by the Commission on the Accreditation of Rehabilitation Facilities (CARF).
Transitioning from Inpatient to Residential Rehab
When patients in Shepherd Center’s Inpatient Brain Injury Rehabilitation Program enter the post-acute phase of their recovery, they may transition to the residential rehabilitation program. Residential rehabilitation involves both the patient and their family and offers total support along the way. A transitional living apartment with a full kitchen and accessible bathroom helps prepare patients to live more independently should they be admitted to the brain injury residential program.
