As the only program of its kind in the area, Transitional Rehabilitation Services (TRS) incorporates an interdisciplinary treatment approach where each client is assigned an experienced rehabilitation team. TRS helps clients with a variety of neurologic injuries, including spinal cord injury, traumatic brain injury, cerebral vascular accident, anoxia and brain tumor. The TRS team provides clients with the necessary daily structure they need to achieve personal goals. These goals, set by the client and rehabilitation team, are directed toward increasing or improving mobility and maximizing independence. All participants work on increasing self-confidence, self-reliance and adjustment to disability. Possessing these qualities is crucial to successful reintegration into the community.
After an injury, clients and their families are often overwhelmed as they deal with day-to-day practical challenges of living in an environment not adapted to their physical limitations. Our services are designed to help them make this next step in recovery.
- Emphasizing training in real-world settings. Therapists use the TRS house (a fully furnished house in Long Beach), venues throughout the community and the client’s actual home and workplace as applicable to reach goals. Clients and their families practice recommended techniques with therapists until they become familiar.
- Empowering clients and their families. Clients and their families are actively involved in all aspects of treatment.
