Goodwill NeuroRehabilitation Services offers comprehensive brain injury services and treatment options for individuals with acquired brain injuries. Our services help individuals increase their independence within their home and community environments.
Brain injury is the leading cause of disability and death for young people in the United States. Each year, brain injury changes the lives of 5,000 individuals and families in Maine. The leading causes of brain injury include falls, motor vehicle crashes and assault. The healing process following a brain injury is quite different from that of other physical injuries. Survivors leave the hospital facing tough challenges: loss of recent memory, problems with organizational skills, personality changes, difficulties with social interaction, an inability to plan and problem solve and physical changes that may affect walking, balance and speech. Goodwill NeuroRehabilitation Services can help people meet these challenges with success.
Referrals to Goodwill NeuroRehab Services are made by the person requesting services, their family doctor, neurologist, case manager, family member, friend or anyone who wants to help.
