Formal rehabilitation for persons with stroke and brain injury is becoming shorter and shorter. It is important for these people and their families to have the tools and resources to continue learning and rebuilding skills for a lifetime.
Individuals often recognize the extent of their needs after traditional rehab services have ended. Many have difficulty returning to work or school. Too often, family relationships can become stressed. This can lead to isolation, job loss, depression, poor long-term medical management, and family dysfunction.
Carolina Center for Cognitive Rehabilitation provides cognitive retraining, educational transition services, family/caregiver education and employment consultation services. In some cases, CCCR may conduct consultations with employers or conduct on-site employment work assessments.
All individuals referred to CCCR must meet basic admission requirements. (See How We Help) Individuals can receive transitional services to assist with re-entry to school or work including teacher consultation and training, IEP/ITP assistance, academic tutoring, job analysis and on-site job consultations. At this time, we DO NOT offer job placement services, but we will help individuals maintain or make job modification recommendations as appropriate.
A doctor’s referral is not required for individuals to participate at CCCR. Individuals can be referred by anyone including persons in the medical community, family members and self-referral. All prospective participants must undergo an initial assessment before being formally admitted to the program.
Currently, we do not receive third party insurance payers unless family assumes responsibility for payments. We are dedicated to helping individuals receive quality brain-injury treatment services at the lowest cost possible. CCCR will not deny any person access to its services based on his or her inability to pay full charges. Our rates in most cases equate to those of co-pays in most rehabilitation venues.
CCCR is committed to increasing community awareness and education about individuals living with acquired brain injury. Members of our staff, program participants and volunteers can tailor educational and training programs for individuals, service organizations or faith communities.
