Day Neuro Program
Pate’s day neuro outpatient program is for people who don’t require round the clock supervision during their brain injury or stroke rehab. The program allows people to stay at home during treatment.
The severity of the brain injury often determines who qualifies for the outpatient program. Day neuro patients receive up to six hours of individualized rehabilitation per day, the maximum amount.
The day neuro program is individualized, not one size fits all. It takes into account the specific environment the patient will be returning to for maximum benefits. The program provides a highly customized treatment plan designed specifically with the patient’s lifestyle and unique skills and goals in mind.
Pate brain injury rehab cares holistically for all aspects of a person’s life, from learning adaptive behaviors to emotional regulation skills.
Using evidence-based treatments and the latest research, Pate’s day neuro program helps people return to their lives.
Admission to the Outpatient Treatment Program
The first step to admission is a meeting with a clinical liaison for an initial assessment. This often takes place at the hospital or the patient’s home. To ensure the program is the best fit, a neuropsychological evaluation or other assessment may be performed to assess whether the patient is suited for day neuro treatment.
Therapies offered include:
- Physical therapy
- Speech language therapy
- Occupational therapy
- Vocational therapy
- Driver rehabilitation
- Cognitive therapy
We offer additional treatments at specific locations such as aquatics at Brinlee Creek Ranch (for appropriate patients). Our CARF accreditation as a stroke specialty program includes learning centers at all locations designed to help people prevent stroke recurrence.
Featured Services and Therapies For Outpatient
Day neuro treatment is offered from 9:00-3:30 pm Monday through Friday with opportunities to modify individual schedules based on treatment needs or other factors when necessary.
For patients who need transportation, Pate is able to assist in many but not all situations. Before you or your loved one is admitted to Pate, confirmation of transportation will be completed by our admissions department.
Preparation for the Real World
Our goal is to return people to their lives at the highest independence level possible. The process of returning to the world after a brain injury includes mastery of many skills we all take for granted. From getting dressed to paying for a hot dog with the correct change to filling out a form, Pate patients need to be prepared for what they’ll encounter in the real world.
- Basic skills like dressing, feeding oneself, going to the bathroom, communicating, writing and getting around
- Complex skills like handling money, paying bills, driving, cooking, or going back to work
We focus on other aspects of rehabilitation too, like adjusting to life on new terms, coping with feelings of grief or loss, and building healthy new coping strategies. We also provide family therapy to help loved ones.
Pate’s goal is to help patients with every aspect of their recovery: physically, cognitively, emotionally and behaviorally.
Outpatient rehabilitation is available at all of our treatment centers in North Texas.
