We bring together an array of resources, advanced technology, plus a team of highly experienced providers, to offer each brain injury patient an individualized approach to treatment. Our Inpatient and Outpatient Programs are designed to support patients at each stage of their recovery, helping them adapt to their post-injury lives, maximize their independence and reenter their communities.
Since every brain injury is different, an individualized program is developed based on the patient’s specific needs. Various rehabilitation services include speech, physical, and occupational therapies because brain injuries often profoundly affect major body systems, including those that enable a person to speak, comprehend, reason and remember.
Our extensive neuropsychological and physical services help patients regain sensorimotor, speech and behavioral skills. All aspects of our Brain Injury Program are therapeutic in nature. Eating breakfast or taking a lunch break provides an opportunity to practice physical as well as psychosocial skills under the supervision of specially trained professionals.
Our Inpatient Program treats patients following a brain injury caused by accident or illness. Our Early Recovery Program is available for patients who are not yet able to tolerate an aggressive therapy schedule, but are expected to progress to a traditional, intensive rehabilitation program. Patients are guided through a continuum of care that takes them from post-coma to community reentry.
Brain Injury Outcomes & Patient Story
Gaylord's Outpatient Program uses a variety of rehabilitation techniques to maximize independence and community reintegration skills. Family members are encouraged to be involved in the rehabilitation process. With support groups and a family education series, as well as our staff psychologists and chaplain, we help patients and their family members adapt to the challenges of recovering from a brain injury.

Coping with a brain injury can be overwhelming and getting the information you need is critical. Gaylord's Medical Director of Inpatient Rehabilitation, Alyse Sicklick, MD, talks about our Brain Injury Program and how we help our patients recover. Dr. Sicklick discusses the kinds of brain injuries we treat, who may be on the clinical treatment team, and the types of rehabilitation available to our patients.
Gaylord's Brain Injury Program focuses on creating a comprehensive treatment and transitional plan for each patient. This video provides an overview of the Brain Injury Program from admission through discharge.
Our working facility dog, Galya, has received extensive training in order to become part of our team. Whether patients need an item retrieved, or the lights turned off, Galya can be of assistance while providing comfort and support.
