Care and Goals
Recognizing that each patient’s physical, cognitive and emotional rehabilitation needs are different, Cumberland designs a truly customized treatment plan for each patient by drawing on the vast services available at the hospital. A thorough evaluation of each patient identifies specific levels and types of therapies, interventions and education that will best address that individual’s specialized needs. Throughout treatment, patients learn ways to adapt physically and emotionally to their deficits as a result of their brain injury. They also learn compensatory strategies to minimize the agitation that may be part of their brain injury recovery.
Each patient receives personalized treatment from a highly trained interdisciplinary staff. Medical needs are directed by a pediatrician with training and experience in brain injury rehabilitation. Pediatric psychiatrists and neurologists are consulted as needed.
Some children who come to Cumberland are in coma and do not require acute rehabilitation. Our caring staff provides the necessary treatment so as patients emerge from coma they will be ready to begin more intensive therapies. The latest proven coma recovery techniques are employed for optimum success.
