Brain Injury

The goal of rehabilitation is to help an individual progress to the most independent level of functioning possible.

Brain InjuryFor some, ability to express needs verbally in simple terms may be a goal. For others, the goal may be to express needs by pointing to pictures. For still others, the goal of therapy may be to improve the ability to define words or describe consequences of actions or events.

Therapy will focus on regaining lost skills as well as learning ways to compensate for abilities that have been permanently changed because of the brain injury. Most individuals respond best to programs tailored to their backgrounds and interests. The most effective therapy programs involve family members who can best provide this information. Computer-assisted programs have been successful with some individuals.

Our comprehensive programs are fully integrated with the St. David’s Neuroscience & Spine Institute, providing comprehensive care from admission to discharge and beyond.

St. David’s Brain Injury Rehabilitation Program is dedicated to guiding patients through extensive activities that promote wellness and comfort for a lifetime. Whether someone has experienced a mild, moderate or severe brain injury, our goals are the same: returning him or her to the family and community, easing pain, promoting mobility and function, and advocating for a productive future.

Our approach to rehabilitation is unique because we do not use a one-size-fits-all philosophy. Our program is structured around the severity of the stroke, the location and type of brain injury, and the unique needs of each patient.
