Residential Inpatient Program

Residential Inpatient Program

CNS provides rehabilitation every hour, every day by reinforcing skills across residential and clinical facilities through staff collaboration and dedication to patient progress. Patients reside in CNS residential facilities and receive up to six hours of therapy, five days a week in our state-of-the-art clinical settings. Simultaneously, our Neuro Rehabilitation Specialists provide residential care 24 hours a day, seven days a week rebuilding what we call the natural rhythm of living. Patients are transported between the CNS residence and clinic by our certified Transportation Services Department.

Our programs maximize treatment effect in real-world settings, empowering patients to enjoy dignified, productive lives. CNS helps patients regain independence through community re-integration and learning vital life skills that foster self-sufficiency.

CNS believes that skills should be practiced within the context of the real-world. Rehabilitation does not only occur in clinical settings, but also in our residential facilities deliberately located in neighborhoods offsite from our clinics. Patients live in apartments or homes and continue practicing skills that would naturally occur in these environments. By following a sleep schedule, morning routine, and other Activities of Daily Living (ADLs), patients practice real-world home skills and become better prepared for life after rehabilitation. The residential environment ultimately allows for structure and consistency, as patients build a routine and regain their natural rhythm of living. Each day, CNS residential staff inspire patients to achieve their own level of independence.

CNS also respects the language, culture, and  religion of residential patients. Specific needs such as dietary restrictions and proximity to places of worship are taken into account when planning the transition to a residential facility.

Bridging the Gap from Rehabilitation to Independence

Making the transition from rehabilitation to home life can be challenging if a period of structured living is not in the patient’s treatment plan. The CNS approach is to bridge this gap, teaching patients how to gain independence and skill so they are reunited successfully with their family, employers, and the community.
