Traumatic Brain Injury Rehabilitation Centers
According to the Brain Injury Association of America, each year 2.4 million adults and children sustain a traumatic brain injury, and over 795,000 experience a brain injury from non-traumatic causes, such as stroke, seizures and tumors. The most serious of these injuries can affect a person’s ability to think, speak, or move — and even impact their personality.
CareMeridian traumatic brain injury long term care facilities serve patients ready to leave the hospital as well as those no longer able to have their needs met at home. Many of our patients also reduce the length of their hospital stays because our community-based facilities offer advanced catastrophic injury care capabilities, including halo care, ventilation and trach care, feeding tubes and vac care for wounds that are still in need of healing.
CareMeridian gives all our patients the opportunity to recover and advance in their independence in a non-institutional setting, while receiving active, personalized 1:1 therapy and benefitting from an industry-leading 1:4 staff-to-patient ratio. Acquired and traumatic brain injury rehabilitation at CareMeridian means support and care from a team of doctors, nurses and therapists who are experienced in systematically implementing highly individualized care plans informed by the most up-to-date brain injury and neurological medicine.
