Where does rehabilitation take place?

Inpatient Rehabilitation Hospitals

Nurse in inpatient rehabilitationAt Brooks Rehabilitation Hospital (BRH), we service patients from all over the nation who visit our facilities located throughout the greater Jacksonville, St. Augustine, Daytona, Orlando, and Hudson areas. Our interdisciplinary teams work closely together with each patient to determine their goals and help them work towards achieving them. This team consists not only of physicians, nurses, physical therapists, occupational therapists, speech therapists, and case managers, but it also often includes music therapists, recreational therapists, peer mentors, neuropsychologists, and other consulted specialists that can provide services that go above and beyond to help our patients achieve recovery and regain their prior level of function.

In our inpatient rehabilitation hospital, we treat our patients using a two-pronged approach that emphasizes both recovery and increased independence. We believe that this simultaneous approach is essential because we want our patients to return home with their loved ones safely, but we also want to maximize their recovery during their time with us. Research has shown that time, intensity, repetition, salience, and specificity supported by our programs improves neuroplasticity. Additionally, our program provides access to state-of-the-art equipment that has been shown to promote neurological recovery.

At BRH, we work closely with our patients and their caregivers. During a patient’s stay, caregivers will be provided with one-on-one training from the clinical team as needed to ensure that they can safely assist the patient with their discharge. These trainings include topics like medication management, how to get in and out of a car, and how to communicate effectively. Our goal is to provide the best possible care while ensuring that all of our patients and caregivers have their needs met, and are set up for success after rehabilitation.

Skilled Nursing Facilities

Rehabilitation in our skilled nursing facilities includes physical therapy, occupational therapy, and speech therapy services. Our team of neurologic therapists will evaluate you to create an individualized treatment plan specific to your needs, and will continue to collaborate with physicians, nurses, and case managers to promote a cohesive treatment process.

In our skilled nursing facilities, we provide access to technology aimed at the promotion of neurorecovery, including electrical stimulation technologies for pain management and neuromuscular re-education, harness systems for walking recovery, and biofeedback devices for dysphagia treatment and balance training.

Our goal for rehabilitation in our skilled nursing facilities is to promote functional independence with mobility, activities of daily living, cognition, communication, and swallowing so you can reach your highest level of recovery.

Home Health

Home health appointmentBrooks Rehabilitation Home Health serves patients in 23 counties across the state of Florida. Rehabilitation in the home setting is based upon the specific care needs of the patient and includes the indicated combination of skilled nursing, physical therapy, occupational therapy, speech therapy, social work, and home health aides. The evaluating clinician from each ordered service will evaluate you from their discipline-specific area of expertise, and all of the clinicians will collaborate to coordinate your specific treatment plan. Each home health plan of care is tailored to the needs of the individual, and the care team is constantly communicating and updating the plan as appropriate.

Home health specialists work with patients and their caregivers to measure things like the width of doorways, height of countertops, and distances between utilities to assess what can be safely navigated by a patient, and where adjustments or equipment could be beneficial.

It is the goal of our team to facilitate the greatest and safest return to function possible, and we accomplish that goal through excellence in rehabilitation and medical care services. We will work with you to ensure your home is set up in the safest way possible, and we look forward to helping you achieve your goals in your recovery.
