Our inpatient specialty rehabilitation programs consist of:
- Stroke Rehabilitation
SRI offers an experienced, exceptional team of stroke rehabilitation professionals who are determined to help all patients reach their highest level of function after stroke. Medical studies have clearly demonstrated that early, vigorous, inter-disciplinary treatment as well as close medical follow-up to prevent future strokes are key to achieving optimal recovery. Our team is dedicated to encourage motor recovery to the affected side to improve functional use. The team of experts at SRI are equipped to provide such medical oversight and the necessary treatments to obtain the best possible recovery for our patients. The team often meets with family members to educate and review progress and provide suggestions for home modifications. Home evaluations are offered to ensure safety in the home environment prior to discharge.
- Brain Injury Rehabilitation
Upon admission to SRI, the team sets up an individualized program to meet the physical and cognitive needs of the patient to achieve the highest level of independence possible. We recognize the critical role of social work in helping the patient and family adjust to the injury. Our certified therapeutic recreation therapists work with the team to assist with community reintegration and re-learning adaptive leisure skills. We also provide neuropsychology/psychology services to address the cognitive and behavioral needs of the patient. The therapy team has specialized certification in brain injury and neurological disorders to help patients maximize recovery.
- Driver Rehabilitation
At SRI, we know one of the most difficult challenges patients face on the road to recovery, after a stroke or brain injury, is regaining the ability to once again drive and safely operate their vehicle. For many patients, driving represents a vital part of their independence and contributes to their emotional well-being and outlook. That is why we have launched a comprehensive driver rehabilitation program, designed to meet the unique needs of disabled individuals while providing them the confidence they need to resume driving.
