Brain Injury & Cognitive Rehabilitation


Cognitive Rehabilitation for Brain Injury Patients

If you or someone you love has experienced a stroke, brain injury or trauma, or neurological disease that has diminished their cognitive abilities, we’re here to help. Munson Healthcare offers a cognitive rehabilitation program for adolescent and adult patients to enhance function and increase independence.

In addition to helping people regain their cognitive abilities, our program also focuses on restoring physical strength and emotional well-being. We help people adjust to their “new normal” — both emotionally and physically by improving activities of daily living such as grooming, grocery shopping, meal preparation, and financial management.

Through Munson Healthcare’s cognitive rehabilitation program, people can benefit from less pain, as well as enhanced attention, processing speed, reasoning, and language skills — enabling them to become more independent at home, work, and school.

A Highly Trained and Experienced Team

Munson Healthcare’s highly trained and experienced team members work together to provide the top quality cognitive rehabilitation care you deserve. Dedicated to your success, our team members include:

  • Occupational therapists
  • Physical therapists
  • Speech-language pathologists
  • Social workers

Individualized Care Plans

Since no two patients are exactly alike, we tailor cognitive rehabilitation programs to each person’s specific needs.

Evaluations, both standardized assessments and several informal assessments, help us first determine each patient’s strengths and weaknesses. Once the evaluations are complete, our team meets to design an individualized care program to include therapist identified areas of need as well as patient generated goals.

Personal progress is carefully monitored and celebrated, too. Throughout the course of rehabilitation, we celebrate every success, large or small, on the path to improved cognitive, physical, and emotional well-being.

Family and Caregiver Involvement

We know recovery is faster and more successful when family members and caregivers are involved in treatment.

That’s why our team holds monthly meetings for each patient, inviting family members and caregivers to join us to learn our techniques and strategies. In addition to these meetings, family members and caregivers are encouraged to sit in on individual sessions, and also participate in treatment tasks as their schedules allow. Understanding therapies and using the same ones at home can reinforce the care their loved ones are receiving.

Welcoming Patients from All Across Michigan

With our compassionate care and evidence-based approach to recovery, patients travel from all parts of Michigan to receive the specialized expertise of our cognitive rehabilitation team.
