Continued Care Program

Continued Care Program

The impact of brain injury can change family and personal dynamics and new realities and can overwhelm a patient’s sphere of support. These demands may require ongoing care after active therapy, because patients may not be ready to return to life post-injury. Also, families may need help managing physical limitations, behavioral issues, and medical complexity. Centre for Neuro Skills recognizes these needs and offers a comprehensive care program to follow active therapy. We call it our Continued Care Program. 

CNS Continued Care offers Assisted Living, Residential, and Supported Living options. In each setting, CNS’ highly trained staff ensure that critical life skills regained in active therapy are practiced and, where possible, improved. 

Assisted Living Residential

Many CNS Assisted Living Residential patients transition in from the Inpatient Residential program to the Assisted Living Residential program. Patients in Assisted Living Residential:

  • Live in a CNS residence close to the clinic
  • Attend the CNS Enrichment Center
  • May or may not still receive some therapies
  • Transportation to and from CNS-sponsored activities is provided

Residential Care at CNS

In our residential settings, CNS can provide care 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Helping patients to practice and strengthen skills obtained in our clinical facilities. Residential patients at CNS are typically in our Inpatient Residential Program or are receiving Assisted Living Residential care.

In our beautiful residential settings, specifically designed for people with brain injuries, CNS Neuro Rehabilitation Specialists inspire patients to achieve additional levels of independence. Each day, patients are transported between the CNS residence and clinic by our certified Transportation Services Department.

A broad range of skills are practiced and honed, including, but not limited to:

  • Safety at home and in the community
  • Money and time management
  • Proper medication use
  • Social activities
  • Behavior skills
  • Self-care
Centre for Neuro Skills

Monitoring and tracking patient progress at CNS is integral to helping people achieve independence and return to a meaningful life. Patient's core living skills, referred to as “Activities of Daily Living” at CNS, are observed and recorded by our trained staff daily. CNS’ various rating scales are clinical tools that help tailor therapies for optimal outcomes. This maximizes treatment effect and ensures long term well-being.

Through staff collaboration and dedication to patient progress, our residential program helps patients regain independence through community re-integration and learning essential life skills.

Supported Living

Supported Living at CNS is focused on maintaining the patient outcomes achieved in active therapy. Patients receiving this care may have transitioned from our Inpatient Residential, Day Treatment, or Assisted Living Residential treatment options. Patients in Supported Living have schedules consisting of a broad range of personalized CNS services tailored to their ongoing needs.

An individual approach to patient care is the cornerstone of our treatment approach, and CNS’ Continued Care Program is no different. Our staff provide person-centered care with expertise, respect, and compassion. CNS staff communicate frequently with the family and provide updates and recommendations along the way.

What is the CNS Enrichment Center?

The Enrichment Center at Centre for Neuro Skills is a space within our clinical setting, that offers a schedule of structured, age-appropriate activities for patients. Typically, Assisted Living Residential, or Supported Living patients at CNS attend the Enrichment Center to maintain the outcomes they achieved in active therapy.

Activities at the Enrichment Center are focused on therapeutic endeavors, engagement opportunities, and skill building, to enrich patients’ lives. They are also centered around the personal interests and capabilities of each patient. 

Activities that are therapy-based might include problem-solving games, a fitness class, a community education course, or a money management exercise. Other activities are artistic and creative, ranging from crafting dream catchers to learning how to prepare home-made salsa, or participating in fundraising events.

The emphasis on community integration and environmental validity at CNS is an integral part of our treatment approach. It allows patients to discover new experiences, provides access to valuable community resources, and challenges patients to adapt and grow. Our therapists collaborate, as part of the patient’s treatment team, to plan activities that augment therapy and address specific deficits, such as enhancing motor skills and improving social and cognitive functioning. 

Our experienced staff are committed to the overall wellbeing of each patient, empowering patients to enjoy dignified, productive lives, and dedicated to helping them achieve the best possible quality of life. At CNS, patients learn, grow, socialize, and maximize their independence.
