Residential and Clinical Services

All residents receive residential services which are comprised of medical oversight including overseeing activities of daily living (personal care needs) and recreational activities. Residents also receive clinical services that include counseling and consultation with a clinician.

Residents with brain injury also have regular consultations with a neuropsychologist and may receive cognitive therapy. Additionally, residents qualified for the Medicaid Brain Injury Waiver receive Residential Habitation Services. Residential Habilitation Services are designed to assist the individual with brain injury with acquiring the skills necessary to maximize his/her independence in activities of daily living and to participate in community life. These services are designed to help the individual acquire, retain and improve self-help, socialization and adaptive skills necessary to reside in the community. Residential Habilitation services are tailored not only to meet specific needs, but also to provide the necessary support to work toward the achievement of the following goals:

  1. Independent completion of activities of daily living (ADL’s).
  2. To maintain a structured daily routine of activities.
  3. To develop and utilize psychosocial skills appropriate for a variety of social settings.
