Our goal at On With Life is to exceed the expectations of persons served and their families. We believe our extensive rehabilitation services, combined with specialized expertise in brain injury rehabilitation, offer individuals the optimal opportunity to achieve their goals.
We are proud to provide a continuum of specialty services for persons served who have sustained a traumatic brain injury, stroke, tumor, aneurysm or other brain injury. 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 tailored to their needs and is created uniquely for them.
"The team at On With Life is a marvel! The care and teamwork from the entire staff has been nothing less than exceptional. It is clear that all of the employees - custodians, CNAs, administrators, therapists, nurses, social workers, cooks, etc. - are working together in tandem with Sandy to maximize the effect on recovery. Even the building itself contributes to well being with its big windows, bright and happy hallways, and immaculate cleanliness. We can't begin to adequately express our gratitude for On With Life!"
- Rev. Gloria Keiser Dovre, Person Served Family Member
"After coming from a large hospital, my greatest concern was the small size of On With Life, which turned into the greatest strength in my opinion. The family-like atmosphere of On With Life was perfect for Zach and for us."
-Sam Chase, Guardian of Person Served
"I'm so glad that I heard of On With Life. I've never met so many wonderful people. The therapists were helpful, the CNAs were warm, caring people and nursing was just excellent. They not only were great with Dennis, but great in training me to care for Dennis. Thanks for all your help and support!"
-Roxanne Hilzendager, Spouse of Person Served
"My son receives excellent care at On With Life, we wouldn't have him anywhere else."
