Care and Goals
We know that each patient’s physical, cognitive and emotional rehabilitative needs vary. Our team designs a customized treatment plan for each patient by drawing on the myriad 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 needs. Throughout treatment, patients learn ways to adapt physically and emotionally to their deficits. 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 come to Cumberland in coma and do not require acute rehabilitation. Our staff provides the necessary treatment so as patients emerge from coma they can begin more intensive therapies. The latest proven coma recovery techniques are employed for optimum success.
