Services for Veterans Living with Brain Injury
Through a unique contract with the United States Veterans Administration, Hope Network provides residential options, including comprehensive rehabilitative care, to military men and women who have sustained a traumatic brain injury while serving in the armed forces.
Known as the Assisted Living Pilot Program for Veterans with Traumatic Brain Injury (AL-TBI), this program helps veterans to receive specialized brain injury services close to their homes and families. Hope Network is one out of only 21 facilities nationwide given the privilege to serve America’s heroes.
Brain injury is a complex diagnosis, and a families’ understanding and support during an individual’s rehabilitation can help promote a more efficient recovery. Working closely with an individual’s VA case manager, veterans interested in pursuing treatment at Hope Network will participate in a comprehensive evaluation to develop a Plan of Care. This Plan of Care identifies the physical, cognitive, vocational, and psychosocial needs and outlines a person-centered treatment plan for addressing these issues.
Treatment Plans May Include:
· Physical therapy
· Speech-language pathology
· Occupational therapy
· Social work
· Medication management and medical services
· Behavior management plans
· Case management services
· Independent living skills training
· Vocational counseling
· Social and recreation activities
· Health promotion and exercise programs
