BRAIN INJURY RECOVERY IN A LOVING FAMILY HOME

One of the specialty areas of CareAgape Assisted Living Homes is housing individuals with Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) who have been discharged from hospitals or post-acute rehabilitation facilities.

CareAgape Assisted Living Homes provide a nurturing environment for individuals with TBI, through the CareAgape TBI Network Program. Here, individuals get the consistency of care to become more self-sufficient. Our TBI network includes resources such as hospitals, nonprofit organizations, home and community habilitation services, and assures a wide range of customized therapies tailored to the needs of each TBI resident. This includes occupational, recreational, physical, speech, art and music therapy from third-party sources as well as life skills coaching and case management. It’s our way to help promote TBI recovery and integrate these individuals back into the community.

Elevate, Don’t Replicate

The CareAgape approach is a new way of working with brain injury patients—a healthy alternative to institutional, post-acute care settings. This integrated model of loving care with specialized habilitation skills can help TBI individuals elevate their daily performance rather than simply replicating other TBI patients in an institutional facility. Habilitation workers provide motivation and hope for TBI patients – a buddy for life – an indispensable advocate for TBI residents that can expedite their improvement, even recovery.

 

Here, TBI residents live among other residents in an environment that best simulates the real world and best stimulates the individual. Our small, 6-bed homes provide a comfortable transition in the continuum of care, with the resources, services, and support to help prevent relapse or even re-hospitalization.

 

Working with our network of specialists, we help recovering TBI patients, families and medical providers to establish realistic goals, provide extensive habilitation, and monitor progress. Our comprehensive and customized program, based on evidence-based practices, helps individuals with TBI relearn everyday skills, gain independence, and integrate back into the community with a renewed life of purpose, social connection and optimism.
