Home and Community Neurorehabilitation serving Ventura and Los Angeles counties.
What is Home and Community Therapy?
The Home and Community Therapy model is an intense, multidisciplinary rehabilitation program designed to address the complex issues and problems faced by persons with neurological injuries and their families. Goals and intensity of therapy are adjusted depending upon the level of function of a given client at admission. Each program is tailored to the individual client’s needs as they transition from the hospital or clinic to their homes, communities and workplaces. Therapy takes place in “real world” settings, allowing the clients to integrate and generalize new skills and strategies specific to their particular needs. Bilingual and bicultural programs are offered for Spanish speaking clients. Involvement with family and relevant community resources improves functional outcomes in this specialized population.
What’s involved in the return to work process?
For those clients who have the potential to return to work, the team prepares the client by gradually improving both cognitive and physical endurance. The client’s individual job duties are analyzed so that critical skills can be strengthened prior to return to the workplace. Strategies are taught to improve organization and time management, and therapy sessions will then begin to take place in the workplace with a BIS therapist acting as a job coach. This therapist works with the employer and the client on gradually resuming essential job duties, suggesting modifications or accommodations to ensure success. Ongoing interaction with the employer during this phase is critical.
What is Community Re-integration?
For maximum recovery of function, clients must carry over skills learned in the home setting to activities in the community. As clients progress, they are further challenged to explore and participate in community activities of interest to them. This involvement results in improved cognitive and physical endurance, emotional well-being, and potential return to driving and/or work. Activities include:
- Shopping and banking
- Return to driving or public transportation
- Return to work or volunteer placement
- Job coaching
- Community gym program
- College courses
- Support groups
- Involvement in community activities of interest to the client
