Hennick Bridgepoint Hospital

Acquired Brain Injury (ABI) and Neurological Rehabilitation

Contact Us

The ABI and Neurological Rehabilitation Program provides care for patients experiencing moderate to severe impairment due damage to the brain caused by injury or illness. The unit also provides care for patients with neurological disorders such as Parkinson’s disease and multiple sclerosis.

Patients work with their care teams on attainable goals so they can regain physical and cognitive function as much as possible. They may also learn about skills and equipment that can help them adapt to changes in physical ability, thinking and communicating. Our aim is to help patients maximize their independence, well-being and quality of life before returning to the community.

When you arrive

Soon after you arrive, you will meet with members of your care team. Your care team may ask you questions and use assessments to get to know you and better understand your physical function and thinking. They will also ask about your goals for your rehabilitation to plan your therapy program. We encourage family caregivers to be part of this process as much as possible.

Partners in care

Patients and family caregivers are important partners in care. You can speak with any member of your care team about anything related to your care and your recovery. You can also request a family meeting with your team any time. In a family meeting, you and your family caregiver meet with your care team. You may want to discuss your progress, your goals and the plan for when you are ready to leave the hospital.

Completing your rehabilitation program

Leaving the hospital after rehabilitation is a big change. Your care team will work with you and your family caregiver to start planning for this transition.

Some patients return to living independently in their previous homes, often with support from community services or a family caregiver. Other patients may need the support or care offered in assisted living, supportive housing or long-term care.

When creating your plan for leaving the hospital, you, your family caregiver and your care team will talk about:

  • When you’ll be ready to leave the hospital
  • What supports and resources you may need to help you live in the community
  • The next steps in your recovery, such as rehabilitation at a clinic in the community
  • Connecting with your family doctor to oversee your care needs after you leave the hospital
