The Marianjoy Brain Injury Rehabilitation Program for adults and children provides comprehensive, individualized treatment plans that focus on the specific needs and goals of the patient.

  • an individualized treatment plan focusing on a patient’s mobility (i.e., walking, stair-climbing, strengthening and balance/
    coordination.
  • assistive therapeutic technology, including balance retraining; fabricating casts or splints; and customized wheelchair-fitting.
  • activities of daily living training.
  • cognitive retraining.
  • swallowing and voice therapy.
  • emotional support and counseling for the patient and family.
