The consequences of brain injury and other
neurological disorders are devastating, often creating lifelong challenges. At Beechwood NeuroRehab, our mission is to enhance independence for individuals with brain injury and other neurological disorders. We embrace this guiding principle through personalized care and comprehensive rehabilitation programs.
Beechwood also recognizes and respects the needs, desires and rights of those we serve, their families, and funding representatives, as we strive to fulfill their expectation of a quality brain rehabilitation program.
The programs at Beechwood NeuroRehab provide opportunities to improve participation in everyday life, which is associated with improved psychological adjustment to disability. In order to continuously improve our programs, we keep track of the following quality indicators:
The Mayo-Portland Adaptability Inventory (MPAI) is used to evaluate the effectiveness of rehabilitation programs that serve people in the post-acute phase following acquired brain injury (ABI). It measures progress on a range of physical, cognitive, emotional, behavioral, and social problems that people may encounter after ABI. MPAI-4 items combine into the Ability Index, the Adjustment Index, and the Participation Index. The Participation Index is a particularly useful measure of the ultimate goal of rehabilitation—societal participation.
Outpatients who have participated in Beechwood’s programs show a significantly higher rate of Adjustment compared with outpatients seen in other post-acute rehabilitation programs. The Beechwood outpatients are also participating at a higher rate in everyday life activities, compared with outpatients served by other post-acute rehabilitation programs.
The following chart summarizes overall Stakeholder Satisfaction Data for the Individuals Served, Family Members, and Funders, as well as providing an Average Satisfaction Rating of all Stakeholders across Residential, Outpatient and Vocational Programs:
Thus all Beechwood’s stakeholders rate these programs as meeting or exceeding their expectations. Overall average ratings are above expectations, and Funders are the most satisfied group, with giving the highest ratings consistently across all programs.
