The Brain Injury Program at Blessing Inpatient Rehabilitation provides special care for patients who are in need of neurorehabilitation to help meet and surpass their rehabilitation goals.

Our specialized equipment, along with the clinical expertise of our physiatrist, rehab nurses, and therapists assist each patient in the recovery process. Blessing offers therapists who have special training in the areas of memory, cognition, attention, and socialization with the goal of maximizing functional recovery to return patients to their highest level of recovery. Therapy will focus on increasing independence in self-care, increasing mobility skills, assisting with coping strategies and developing strategies for enhancing cognition while using a variety of devices.

Once admitted to the Blessing Inpatient Rehabilitation Program, you will be evaluated by a team of therapists and examined by specially trained rehab nurses. During your stay, you can be assured your progress will be treated using an inter-disciplinary approach where the physicians, nurses and therapist are in constant communication to develop and deliver you the best possible care.

Throughout rehab, you will have the ability to access Blessing’s room service for nutrition needs, provided around your therapy times.

Prior to your discharge, you and your caregiver will have the opportunity to personally work with the therapists, nurses and discharge planner to assist your caregiver in ways to best meet your healing needs. For example, the nurse will discuss medications and answer questions you might have. The therapists will show your caregiver specially the best way to work with you once you leave the inpatient rehab unit. The discharge planner will work with you to coordinate services you will need after discharge
