Assistance for Patients and Families at Every Stage of Treatment

From their first encounter with us, patients and their loved ones know that CNS has given consideration and forethought to the help they will need on the journey of rehabilitation. Brain injury is complex and the services offered at all of our locations have a primary objective: to help patients and families navigate the many aspects of treatment from admission to discharge and beyond. At each stage of recovery our experienced, compassionate staff provide renowned care in a multidisciplinary program that includes:

Case Management

Case managers collaborate frequently with other therapists on the patient’s team to ensure patients are maximizing rehabilitation. The patient’s sphere of support is informed by the case manager on progress in behavior, speech, medication, physical therapy, cognition, self-care, occupational therapy, education, counseling, academic skills, money management, and emotional adjustment.
