Choosing a rehabilitation program is very important. Without formal therapy services, many individuals with brain injuries fail to return to purposeful and productive lives. Without adaptive techniques and therapy, spinal cord injury survivors often have difficulties coping.
Rainbow offers comprehensive post-acute rehabilitation services for children, adolescents and adults. We help individuals regain lost skills or functions while introducing new skills and strategies to cope with long-term changes.
Our programs include:
Active Rehabilitation Program – At Rainbow, we recognize that rehabilitation is not one-size-fits-all. Clients in the Active Rehabilitation Program participate in highly individualized, intensive treatment that incorporates our vast array of treatment professionals. Clients are challenged to achieve their goals and are given daily opportunities for success. Key components of the program are ongoing team meetings, inclusive of client and family, to update and develop new treatment goals, outcomes measurement and progress reporting.
Neuro-Behavioral Rehabilitation Program – Rainbow's Neuro-Behavioral Program provides a unique care option for clients when moderate to severe behaviors interfere with the goals of therapy and community re-entry. This program is directed by a Ph.D.-level psychologist and a team of mental health therapists, substance abuse specialists, behavioral analysts and other staff trained in behavior modification. Principles involve positive reinforcement, peer mentoring and modeling. Educational support and vocational training are provided when appropriate, and opportunities for transition to increasingly less structured environments are encouraged as clients learn and maintain new skills.
Medical Rehabilitation Program – Catastrophic injuries are often complicated by medical needs requiring specialized care. For these individuals, we are more than rehabilitation service providers or caregivers. We are advocates for the improvement of health and wellness, both physically and emotionally.
Our Medical Rehabilitation Program can often mean earlier discharge from the hospital, a reduced need for subsequent hospitalizations and easier management of medical conditions. Our nursing staff works closely with the client's doctors and other health care professionals to provide appropriate, high-quality medical care with the focus on meeting the changing needs of the client.
Pediatric Program – The needs of children are quite different than those of adults. For this reason, Rainbow's Pediatric Program is set apart from other programs. A team of pediatric specialists provides age-appropriate therapies and guidance. Key elements are:
Young Adult Program – This program is designed to assist young adults in gaining meaningful employment and developing the skills to initiate and maintain relationships. Fundamental components of the program are educational support, learning work skills and job coaching assistance. Both the Pediatric and Young Adult programs are led by a Ph.D.-level pediatric psychologist and are located in an excellent school district near abundant community resources.
Supported Living – Rainbow's Supported Living Program is designed for individuals who have achieved their maximum level of independence and still require ongoing care and supervision. Community outings, fitness, health and wellness, and leisure skills are emphasized. From day trips and sporting events to weight training and aquatic therapy, clients have numerous opportunities to engage in social activities and maintain a high quality of life.
Semi-Independent Living – This program is designed to encourage personal independence. Graduated levels of supervision are provided, and clients advance to increasingly less-structured settings as goals are achieved. This program offers a safe and supportive environment as clients take the last critical steps toward independence. Treatment is focused on:
Vocational Rehabilitation Program – In order to help our clients enter or re-enter the work community successfully, we've established a comprehensive vocational program for adults and teens. Many of our clients earn a wage working at our sheltered workshops or in area businesses that share our recognition that everyone has something to contribute to the community. Jobs and training program areas include administrative work, light assembly, hospitality, customer service, manufacturing, warehousing, sales, recycling, landscaping, farming, vehicle detailing and packaging.
Home and Community Program – Clients can call on Rainbow to provide ongoing individual therapies, nursing services, personal care and training in activities of daily living, such as meal preparation, shopping, money management and community access. These services help maintain the success achieved after leaving our residential settings, following hospital stays or when participating in home-based therapy programs.
Rainbow's team works with the client and family to develop a plan of care and implement the programs needed for successful independent living. Clients participating in Home and Community Programs have ready access to an entire team of rehabilitation professionals and treatment resources.
Outpatient Services – Rainbow provides outpatient and day treatment services to clients who are living in their own homes and wish to participate in rehabilitation programs uniquely tailored to their individual needs. Activities are designed for therapeutic benefit, recreation outlet and/or vocational skill development. As is the case in our residential programs, outpatient clients are evaluated and receive treatment according to a customized plan of care developed by a team of Rainbow professionals in coordination with the client's goals and the treating doctor's prescriptions.
Transportation Services – Rainbow offers transportation services through its wholly-owned subsidiary, Rehab Transportation. More than a ride, Rehab Transportation's drivers are trained in caring for individuals with special needs. Rehab Transportation offers competitive rates, on-time service and comfortable, secure vehicles. Our drivers can even offer care before, during and after transportation. A complete range of services are available throughout Michigan.
Respite Care Services – From time to time, families may need a place for loved ones to come and receive care on a temporary basis. For those times, Rainbow's Respite Care Services are the right choice to provide day, overnight and/or extended care as needed.
