For patients who are medically stable, yet require 24-hour a day monitoring and care, our transitional living inpatient brain injury rehabilitation program helps people with brain injuries reach their highest level of independence.
By living with us as they complete their rehab, patients receive round the clock assistance in a comfortable, protective environment designed to support them through all the stages of recovery, and handle all kinds of disabilities. Pate vans whisk patients to therapy in the mornings and bring them back at night to enjoy healthy meals, activities and staff and peer encouragement.
Pate’s inpatient program focuses on each person’s unique prognosis and includes personalized rehab in cognitive and communication issues, physical functioning, daily living activities and routines, leisure activities, behavior management and more. Our cross disciplinary approach is designed to return people to their communities. Not just any community – but the specific one belonging to the patient. This individualized preparation can be invaluable.
What is Transitional Living?
Living with us during brain injury treatment gives people comprehensive care, with ongoing observation by staff to assess progress around the clock and help our residents get the most from rehabilitation.
Treatment areas include:
- Driver rehabilitation
Patients receive treatment Monday through Friday from 9:00 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. We offer six hours of treatment per day, instead of the industry standard of four hours a day. That’s an additional two hours more per day and ten hours every week! This extra attention truly matters.
We provide free transportation to and from treatment and for all group activities. We also coordinate doctor’s visits and other trips when needed.
Who will care for you or your loved one? The residences are staffed 24-hours a day, including therapists and rehab technicians, and on-call nurse. Trained staff manage medications, assist patients in their daily routines and ensure their safety. They are there to encourage, support and are invested in making your rehabilitation the most positive experience it can be. The residences are typically small, between 10 – 22 beds, and this size allows for a lot of personal attention.
Pate’s transitional living centers are designed to continue rehabilitation during off-hours with targeted activities. The residence staff can observe patients throughout the day and this provides valuable feedback to the clinicians at our centers.
Located in Dallas, Fort Worth and a real Texas ranch north of McKinney, our living centers are very attractive, updated, and offer a variety of room styles including semi-private, private and apartment-style spaces with kitchenettes. Shared great rooms offer flat screen televisions, computer access and space to relax and enjoy family visits.
