Brain injury rehabilitation is a focused yet delicate process. And while many brain injuries share characteristics with other disabling conditions, the most notable deficiency in the immediate aftermath of a brain injury is cognitive impairment.

Cognitive impairment tends to reduce the individual’s ability to actively participate in everyday life. Symptoms of this impairment often include:

  • Problems with attention and concentration
  • Time/place orientation
  • Mood regulation and impulse control
  • Processing and understanding information
  • Self-awareness and judgment
  • Visual perception
  • Language and communication issues
  • Memory


Following brain injury, a person’s ability to process and understand information often slows down. Focused rehabilitation is needed in order to rebuild their cognitive skills. Most important of all, individual attention by trained professionals is key.

At the Northeast Center, our clinical and support staff specializes in this area of treatment. We are a one-of-a-kind facility, and the largest program in the world dedicated specifically to brain injury. And because we look at everyone who is admitted to our facility as a Resident-Neighbor, we build a sense of community that makes for a unique rehabilitation environment.

When your loved one has suffered a brain injury, you want them to have the best care possible.

We understand. And we’re here to help.
