At On With Life we understand the important role family plays in the recovery and rehabilitation process following a brain injury, stroke, tumor or other complex neurological condition. The following programs/services are aimed at supporting families along the journey.
Social Work/Case Management Team
Our Case Management team is often the first contact with persons served and families during the evaluation process and closely monitor individuals throughout the rehabilitation journey. They maintain consistent contact with family members and external case managers to communicate information, understand cultural and spiritual preferences, address critical issues and coordinate discharge planning. This team also assists with applications for funding, provides referrals for short- and long-term resources, encourages advocacy and provides education before and after discharge, including planning and coordination for return to work and school.
Adjusting to and understanding the rehabilitation process can be challenging for many families. That is why we provide counseling services as part of our program for persons served and families who may need it during their time with us. We also provide peer mentoring and spiritual support services.
We understand that when a loved one sustains a brain injury, the entire family is affected. Our focus on family support and involvement in the rehabilitation process has been core to our mission since we opened in 1991.
