Providing patients with the opportunity to gain independence and live harmoniously in their community.
Community integration involves enabling individuals with a brain injury to live successfully in their community and participate fully in all aspects of community life. This means more than a return to doing what they loved to do before the illness or injury. It involves the ability to live in the way the patient chooses to live without barriers.
Moody Neuro fosters a patient’s growth in their new life in the community as opposed to the nuances of the medical facility where they achieved medical recovery. Therapists at Moody Neuro work with patients to develop safe, productive leisure activities to improve quality of life. New activities are learned and old activities are re-evaluated to determine the need for assistance and/or adaptive equipment.
Apartment trials are provided for patients who have demonstrated independent and safe behaviors on campus. While in the apartment, these patients are expected to engage in real-life scenarios (e.g., meal preparation and clean-up) with guidance from licensed therapists.
