Living with a Brain, Spinal Cord, or Neurological Illness or Injury
The sooner you begin rehabilitation following an injury or illness to the brain, spinal cord, or nervous system, the better your chance of recovery.
A neurological impairment can have physical, cognitive, and emotional effects. Our specially trained, physician-led, interdisciplinary healthcare team can help you reduce your symptoms, regain your function, and return home with the highest level of abilities possible.
At ClearSky Rehabilitation Hospital of Rio Rancho, we work with you and your family to create a customized, progressive care plan that best addresses potential short and long-term effects, which may include:
- Alertness levels
- Memory and attention issues
- Reasoning and problem-solving struggles
- Mobility issues
- Fine motor skills
- Mood changes
- Impulsiveness and agitation
- Eating and swallowing issues
- Medical complications
- Safety awareness
Upon discharge, we remain a partner in your healthcare. We understand that your best opportunity for recovery is within a few months following your medical event. We want to help you find ways to capitalize on that time.
We help arrange further resources as needed, such as follow-up physician appointments, outpatient therapy, or home health. We supply you and your family with educational information on continued exercises, behavior modifications, home modifications, and assistive devices, if necessary.
Our goal is to help you return home with the highest level of physical and cognitive abilities possible.
