Brain Injury

Residential and day services in the heart of the community.

Advocates Brain Injury Services support adults with acquired or traumatic brain injuries so that they can lead full and meaningful lives in the community. Our range of residential and community supports help each person achieve the greatest level of independence at each stage of recovery. We emphasize  helping people actively engage in the communities where they live through recreational, vocational, educational, and social pursuits.

All supports are provided by direct care staff, nurses, and case managers with specialized training and expertise in brain injuries. We take time to consider each person’s unique needs and goals, and we work collaboratively with those we support to customize a plan that works best for each individual.

Services

Residential

Advocates provides a range of supports in homes that have been carefully designed and built/renovated to meet the physical and rehabilitative needs of survivors of brain injury. Warm, welcoming interiors offer a mix of communal space and private rooms or suites. Homes are located in residential neighborhoods with convenient access to community resources, such as bike paths, public transportation, shopping districts, libraries, and health centers. All homes provide round-the-clock staffing and on-site nursing to meet a range of needs.

Community Services

For adults with brain injury living at home on their own or with family members, we customize services in the community depending on each person’s goals. Supports may include life skills training, recreation, health management, vocational support, and community reintegration. Flexible supports, from as few as 1-2 hours per week to significantly more, vary depending on the level of need.

Day Services

Our unique day services create opportunities for survivors of brain injury to learn and enhance their independent living skills and enjoy life. Our staff specializes in brain injury and community reintegration and works with each individual to customize a plan of support that meets his or her needs and goals. Services and activities take place at our location within the SLI Wellness Center in Lexington, Mass. and in a wide variety of community settings.

Eligibility

Advocates Brain Injury Services are open to adults age 18 and older with acquired or traumatic brain injury. Payment options include Mass Health, ABI Waiver, private insurance, private pay, settlement, and workers compensation, among other options. Please call our staff to discuss your needs.
