Brain Injury Program
At Frazier Rehab Institute, the Brain Injury Program provides intensive, comprehensive services designed to prevent or minimize disability, while restoring the person to optimal levels of physical, cognitive, behavioral and emotional functioning.
A brain injury or illness can be devastating for both patients and family members. The results can mean dramatic changes in a person’s mental, emotional and physical functioning.
Frazier’s Brain Injury Program, which is accredited by CARF (Commission on Accreditation of Rehab Facilities), addresses the long-term impact of brain injury and offers the most complete continuum of rehab services in Kentuckiana. Involvement begins when the admission coordinator visits patients in the acute care hospital setting, wherever possible, to begin educating the families and preparing for the patients to enter rehab.
