Housed adjacent to Shepherd Pathways, the Residential Program has 12 designated beds that are maintained by 24-hour supervision from a nurse or life skills trainer, who support individual treatment goals.
Research shows that integrated care which includes primary needs like housing and community re-entry, yields better long-term results for brain injury patients.
Everything in the Shepherd Pathways apartments is accessible, from the wide hallways for to accommodate wheelchairs to the bathrooms with roll-in showers, tub showers, shared bathroom and private bathrooms.
A physiatrist assists in directing each patient's care with the support of nurses, therapists and rehab assistants. Specially trained brain injury specialists work with transitional residential patients to implement behavior and personal-management plans. Patients also receive assistance with activities of daily living (ADLs), medications and management of behaviors.
Pathways residents are encouraged to do as much for themselves as they can to get ready in the morning – showering, shaving and dressing – as well as cleaning their rooms and doing laundry. They can use a downstairs laundry room where the basics are provided and staff can help if needed.
