CENTER FOR BRAIN INJURY
Providing exceptional care to individuals and their loved ones affected by traumatic brain injuries and functional disabilities.
YOU CARE ABOUT THEM.
WE DO TOO.
The Cortland Center for Brain Injury and Rehabilitation is a community-based program providing supports to individuals who have sustained a traumatic brain injury (TBI) and to individuals in need of support services at home and in the community. Effects of a traumatic brain injury can include impairments related to thinking or memory, movement, sensation, or emotional functioning. Our services are designed to address all of these areas in a variety of settings.
Each care plan is designed to meet the needs and desires of our clients. Our team is able to provide all-inclusive care or clients and families can choose what supports are the most important for them. Every individual and situation is different – no care plan is the same.
The Service Coordinator/Case Manager helps an individual develop a person-centered plan of care which reflects the individual’s goals, interests, and desired outcomes. They serve as an advocate for the individual ensuring all services are implemented and coordinates and collaborates with all providers to effectively facilitate the individual service plan.
INDEPENDENT-LIVING SKILLS TRAINING (ILST)
Independent-Living Skills Training and Development services are designed to improve the ability of the individual to live as independently as possible in the community and in their home. ILST services may include assessment; training; and supervision of, or assistance to, individuals with issues related to self-care, medication management, task completion, reduction/elimination of maladaptive behaviors, problem-solving skills, money management, pre-vocational skills, and household management.
STRUCTURED DAY PROGRAM
Structured-Day Program (SDP) services are provided in an outpatient day habilitation setting or in the community. These services are designed to improve or maintain the individual’s skills and ability to live as independently as possible in the community. SDP groups emphasize basic work skills, problem-solving, communication, computer operation, cooking, and a wide range of other activities that work on promoting or sustaining one’s ability to be independent within their community.
Residential services are currently provided to those individuals who have sustained a traumatic brain injury and have a variety of insurances, such as Worker’s compensation, no-fault insurance, or private insurance. The residences are located close to community services and to our Structured-Day Program. These services include support with activities of daily living, community integration, homemaker or housekeeping services, and other personal-care tasks. These services also provide safety and oversight of individuals who may require such assistance.
