At the Neurologic Rehabilitation Institute (NRI) at Brookhaven Hospital, we understand that individuals with a moderate to severe brain injury will have needs that evolve over time. For individuals with a brain injury, the normal effects of growing older are often accelerated. When adults are aging with a brain injury, issues like early onset dementia, fatigue, memory-loss and other neurological problems can compound the original effects of their traumatic brain injury. This can cause frustration for the individual with a brain injury and strain on their caregivers.

That’s why we’ve created the Lifespan Alternative, a unique residential program for adults aging with a brain injury. For more than 20 years, our trained technicians have been providing neurological rehabilitation, behavioral therapy and counseling services to individuals with moderate to severe brain injuries. Our treatments provide supportive neurological care designed to help our patients maintain certain skill sets and support cognitive health.

The Lifespan Alternative provides expert neurological care in a compassionate environment so that adults with traumatic brain injuries can experience maximum dignity and independence as they grow older.
