Post-Acute Inpatient Rehab

On With Life's Post-Acute Inpatient Rehabilitation program is a 28-bed, CARF accredited program that provides intense therapy to those that have sustained a traumatic brain injury, stroke, tumor, loss of oxygen or other neurological condition. On With Life is a unique one-of-a-kind facility. Our extensive rehabilitation experience and our expertise in the treatment of individuals with brain injury offer individuals the optimal opportunity to achieve their goals. 


"The staff at On With Life is like an extension of our family - they made us feel right at home from day one. Joel has regained a huge piece of himself thanks to the dedication of staff members. They laugh with us and cry with us - they understand us at a time when others cannot. Their experience, patience and focus are exactly what is needed."

- The Herzberg Family 

Individualized, Collaborative Care 

As specialists in brain injury rehabilitation, we know that each injury is unique, with specific needs, capabilities and potential. Therefore, each person served has a treatment plan that is created uniquely for them. The entire rehabilitation team at On With Life works together with the person served and family to develop a treatment plan that meets the goals of those involved. Goals and outcomes are measured on a regular basis and on average, 75% of individual long-term goals are met and 60% of persons served return home at discharge. 

"We only exist today because of the dream of a dedicated group of families who were affected by brain injury. Their dedication and commitment many years ago has allowed us to help more than 1,400 survivors of brain injury."

-Julie Fidler Dixon, Executive Director


Disorders of Consciousness Program

The On With Life Disorders of Consciousness (DOC) program is a unique level of care that has been developed to address the needs of adolescents and adults with severe brain injury who present with low levels of consciousness. This program involves specialized physical interventions to address body positioning, muscle tone and medical stability. A specially trained multidisciplinary team provides environmental stimuli, monitors for signs of arousal/awareness, and adjusts the stimuli in order to maximize the survivor's improvement. On With Life has admitted more than 250 individuals into the DOC program and of those, 76% emerged from their DOC and approximately 60% of individuals return home at discharge. 


In July 2014, On With Life and its Disorders of Consciousness program were selected over 6,000 other contenders for the LeadingAge 2014 Innovation in Care and Services Award. This national award is given in recognition of a program that is a model of innovation and excellence which contributes significantly to the quality of life of the individuals served.
