Cognitive impairment in adults may occur as a result of a right hemisphere stroke, traumatic brain injury, neurological diseases or as a part of the normal aging process. Impairment with cognitive skills can involve changes with memory, attention, problem solving, judgment, organization and language.
Research has proven that cognitive rehabilitation can be effective in improving overall cognitive functioning when conducted in a clinically supervised setting. The Swain Center is recognized for offering a variety of services that are designed to improve overall cognitive functioning.
We also offer specialized Cognitive Rehabilitation Programs which include:
Traumatic brain injury (TBI) is a complex injury with wide variety of symptoms and subsequent disabilities. The impact on a person and his or her family can be devastating. TBI are most often caused by motor vehicle accidents, sports injuries or simple falls. Concussions are common causes of TBI resulting in symptoms that may be overlooked or dismissed. Symptoms associated with post-concussion syndrome can persist long after the initial injury. The deficits associated with head trauma will vary depending on the type and severity of the injury. TBI is the leading cause of death and disability in children and adults from ages 1-44 years. An estimated 1.6 million to 3.8 million sports-related TBIs occur each year.
Many problems result following TBI. The effects of the deficits following TBI can potentially be professionally, socially and personally devastating.
Recovery from TBI will vary depending on the nature and extent of the injury. However, comprehensive assessments from rehabilitation professionals will assist in recommendations for treatment intervention in order to maximize a person’s potential for recovery.
