Our Long-Term Skilled Care program is a 32-bed skilled nursing program for youth and younger adults who have experienced a brain injury, including traumatic brain injury, stroke, tumor, aneurysm or anoxia, or other neurological disorder. Our specialization in brain injury makes us unique when compared to other long-term programs. The medical, therapeutic, psychosocial, recreational and spiritual needs of each person served are our only focus.
Certain brain injuries, including those that result in a coma/disorders of consciousness state, require much more time to treat, but that doesn't mean that hope should fade. Long-term skilled care is the best option for persons with brain injury who are medically stable, but require intensive nursing, therapy and medical supports that may not be available in other settings.
On With Life's Long-Term program has created a caring, therapeutic environment where each individual receives ongoing opportunities for improvement. On-site aquatic therapy and a one-of-a-kind sensory stimulation gym makes this a truly unique therapeutic environment.
Read more about our Long-Term program in the Spring/Summer 2013 issue of Headway Magazine. Zach, a person served in our Long-Term program, and his mom Dana share their story and journey to On With Life.
On With Life is the only organization in the United States to trial the jDome, an interactive bike that allows persons served to virtually bike anywhere in the world!
On With Life and Mercy Medical Center are partnering to offer the 2nd Annual Brain Injury Conference: Recovery, Presentation and Long-Term Issues of Care. The conference is scheduled for Friday, June 23 at Mercy Medical Center in Des Moines.
