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 equine assisted therapy (for appropriate patients) and aquatics at Brinlee Creek Ranch. Our CARF accreditation as a stroke specialty program includes learning centers at all locations designed to help people prevent stroke recurrence.
Day neuro treatment begins each day at 9:00 a.m. and continues until 3:30 p.m. with a break for lunch. Treatment is provided Monday through Friday.
For patients who need transportation, we provide that free of charge and offer a generous pickup radius.
A Pate van will pick you up in the morning and return you that afternoon. Our transportation team is also available for tasks such as medication pickup and trips to doctor’s offices.
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.
