Following hospitalization, many individuals who experience a severe brain injury require specialized, longer-term neurobehavioral treatment in an intensive community-based setting. Most post-acute rehabilitation programs, skilled nursing facilities and assisted living facilities are incapable of meeting the rehabilitation demands posed by behavioral challenges from a brain injury. Our community-based neurobehavioral rehabilitation service was developed to specifically address those demands.
Community NeuroRehab currently operates five residential treatment facilities, four in Iowa (Click Here for the Iowa specific website) and one in Oklahoma. We offer individuals who have a brain injury with a safe, home-like setting where they can continue to develop skills, with the assistance of experienced brain injury rehabilitation professionals, to manage their cognitive, physical, medical, behavioral, and psychosocial challenges.
Intensive rehabilitation programming is presented in “real life” neighborhood environments designed to promote the reacquisition of a level of independent living skills and the use of strategies to maximize each person’s sense of independence and self-reliance. Trained staff are available around the clock to assist program participants in this process and to ensure their ongoing safety and well-being.
After experiencing a severe brain injury, most individuals can’t simply return to the community after being discharged from a specialized brain injury rehabilitation hospital. This is because most home or community-based settings aren’t designed to manage the ongoing rehabilitation needs, especially when neurobehavioral struggles are present. For this reason, the Brookhaven NeuroRehabilitation Network offers an alternative for the post-acute phase of recovery—Community NeuroRehab.
Community NeuroRehab of Oklahoma opened in 1991 as the first residential rehabilitation program for individuals with traumatic brain injury in the state.
Centrally located in one of Tulsa’s scenic, small-ranch neighborhoods, our Tower Heights residential rehabilitation facility offers all the amenities our transitioning patients require including:

If you’re the primary caregiver for an individual with a brain injury, “caregiver burnout” is a very real—and very common—problem. Caregiver burnout is a state of physical, emotional and mental exhaustion that occurs when someone is responsible for the long-term care of another person 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Caregivers often experience symptoms of fatigue, anxiety, stress and depression. They feel guilty when they take time out for themselves—or neglect their own physical and emotional needs altogether.
At Community NeuroRehab, we believe that caregivers shouldn’t have to shoulder the burden alone—we’re here to help with a specially designed program dedicated to the longer-term rehabilitation of people who have experienced brain injuries.
