There is no preparation for traumatic injury.

The injured and their families find themselves in an ICU confronted with a reality that they never dreamed could happen.   As they move to a rehabilitation hospital, begin physical therapy, and eventually are discharged the shock wears off, but the need for help continues as recovery evolves and new complications arise.

NeuroHope strives to make long-term access to cutting-edge rehabilitation in Indiana a reality.

The NeuroHope mission extends beyond rehab.  We are devoted to better the lives of those already living with paralysis by offering specialized, activity based wellness programs.

Continued Rehabilitation

Recovery from neurologic injury is a process that requires months or years of patient determination and clinician care.  Most patients, however, are discharged from inpatient rehabilitation in a matter of weeks.  Then, they are given a limited number of insurance-covered outpatient therapy options to continue their recovery.  For patients recovering from neurologic injury, this is grossly insufficient. Due to the extremely high cost of therapy at most facilities ($300+ per hour), out of pocket payment after insurance is exhausted is unrealistic.

NeuroHope uniquely offers membership packages at affordable rates when insurance coverage has capped so patients can maximize recovery and have more time to learn skills needed to improve quality of life post-injury.

Health and Wellness

Exercise is important to everyone, especially those suffering from paralysis.  The simple task of walking puts needed stress on the body to insure proper bone density, muscle growth, and many other bodily functions.   It’s important for wheelchair users to maintain their bodies after they are no longer able to obtain the benefits that come from the average activities of daily living.

NeuroHope works with its clients to develop specialized programs that focus on getting individuals out of their chairs and working hard, focusing on functional activities to improve muscular and cardiovascular health, to help alleviate the complications that come hand in hand with SCI (bladder infections, pressure sores, range of motion, spasticity, etc.)

The benefits of improving health through regular exercise have proven to reduce hospital re-admission rates and health care costs, benefitting hospitals, insurers, patients and caregivers.

NeuroHope is a proud member of the Christopher and Dana Reeve Foundation NeuroRecovery Network (NRN)

The NRN is a network of rehabilitation centers designed to promote functional recovery AND improve the health and quality of life for people living with paralysis.
