Let’s kick off summer with a short video of inspiring clients who CONTINUE to make progress in their recoveries at NeuroHope!
The short video below shows clips of Juan taking steps after his brain injury, Yarnin and Mike using neuromuscular electrical stimulation to improve hand and arm function after stroke, and Lucas and Slade working hard after spinal cord injury. You’ll also notice our Wellness Program in action, which features gym access and group cardio and strength classes.
We recently received an $18,000 grant from the Christopher and Dana Reeve Foundation to boost this program!
Recovery from neurologic injury takes TIME, ACCESS, MOTIVATION, and HARD WORK. This is why we’re here!
Over the course of a long career as a nurse, Jenny Rosebrock served many patients recovering from neurologic injuries, but she never imagined she would be on the receiving end of such care. That changed in March of 2020, when Jenny suffered a brainstem stroke causing left side paralysis. It would be the start of a long and grueling road to recovery.
Jenny spent three weeks at a local rehabilitation hospital before she was discharged home. With outpatient clinics closed last spring due to COVID-19, she was not able to begin outpatient therapy at the hospital until June. By the fall, Jenny had made significant gains. She had regained some movement, and could take her first steps with a hemi-walker.
Unfortunately, in October of 2020, just seven months after her stroke, it was determined that Jenny had “plateaued”. Her recovery was deemed complete and she was discharged from rehabilitation. It is a story that is familiar to so many patients battling the rehabilitation process. Neurologic injuries take months, sometimes years, to recover from. NeuroHope was created to help patients like Jenny maximize their recovery. Fortunately, her outpatient therapist recommended NeuroHope so she could continue her progress. (story continued below video)
Over the last four months, Jenny has been a regular in the NeuroHope gym with Nora, Megan, and Lydia, pushing her recovery. She has inspired everyone with her enthusiasm, and came up with the idea for our “Key West Challenge”, a therapy and workout challenge involving everyone at NeuroHope that tracks therapy and wellness “miles” on a virtual journey to Florida.
Most importantly, Jenny’s recovery continues! The video above captures the emotional moment when she left her walker behind and took her FIRST STEPS after her stroke.
“I am so grateful to NeuroHope,” Jenny says. “With an atmosphere of positivity and encouragement, and a great staff and facility, I have made progress and can use a walker without a leg brace now. My ‘stroke-aversary’ is in March. As I reflect on the past year, I am thankful for family, friends, my therapists, and for NeuroHope!”
Keep pushing Jenny! This is why we’re here!
From the NeuroHope family to each of yours: Merry Christmas, and Happy Holiday season! May the holiday season provide a respite from stress and a chance to reflect on the blessings we have!
We are thankful to be in the lives of each of our patients recovering from life-changing injury, and we appreciate every supporter that follows their inspiring journeys. In 2020, NeuroHope helped 96 people receive continued therapy. Additionally, the Wellness program we launched thanks to your donations and support from the Indiana Department of Health gave 25 members access to open gym and assisted gym hours at NeuroHope to stay as active as possible after injury.
It’s all part of our ongoing mission to provide a location where long-term, affordable rehabilitation and wellness is possible. We are proud to make it happen!
2021 will mark our 6-year anniversary, and the opportunity to help our 200th patient!
Happy Holidays everyone! We appreciate you all!
The year 2020 has been turbulent for non-profit organizations. Fundraising is always a challenge, but never more than this year Charities had to sustain temporary closures due to COVID-19, and need to raise more funds than usual to make up for lost time and to implement program changes.
Thankfully, there are angel organizations, donors, and foundations that believe in NeuroHope and are eager to help!
I’m thrilled to announce that NeuroHope is the proud recipient of a $25,000 program grant from the OrthoIndy and Indiana Orthopedic Hospital Foundation! This generous gift is made possibly by the Central Indiana Community Foundation (CICF). The OrthoIndy Foundation was created in 2012 with a mission to improve mobility and function for residents of central Indiana. The Foundation supports local programs that work to increase self-sufficiency, promote wellness, and improve the quality of life for individuals in need.
The Foundation first believed in our vision back in 2016, when it supplied NeuroHope with a generous expansion grant to help our clinic move to our current location. In the four years since, NeuroHope has grown to form a true continuum of care program for people living with and recovering from paralysis, and we’ve helped 184 people on their road to recovery.
Our program revolves around providing supplemental therapy and exercise for patients. Most people attend NeuroHope because their insurance coverage for physical therapy has been capped. These patients need extended therapy and more time with specialists to work on goals that maximize recovery and improve their quality of life. This award from the OrthoIndy Foundation helps fund the supplementary care we provide, and will ensure our program remains strong in 2021 and beyond. We are humbled and honored to have their support!
What a day! Our 3rd annual “Swing Fore Hope” charity scramble was a smashing success. 132 golfers, 18 sponsors, a silent auction, raffle winners, patient speeches by Mitch Dankert and Chris Nichols, and a day’s worth of free food and drinks for all. Most importantly, we raised a grand total of $53,000 for NeuroHope!
There are many people to thank who made this year’s ONLY fundraiser such a success:
Every golfer that came out to support our patients, the auction item donors, the NeuroHope events committee led by Justin Davis, who planned the outing for months, Indy Biplanes for an exciting tee-off flyover, Ironwood Golf Club for being such great hosts, all of our pizza donors, Jack’s Donuts, Fuzzy’s Vodka, Four Day Ray Brewing, and Havana Cigar Lounge for the presence and product donations all afternoon!
A special thanks goes to our Event Sponsors: Hensley Legal Group, Langdon Shaw Wealth Management, hc1.com, Goodman Campbell Brain and Spine, Rehab Medical, and Delta Faucet
A special thanks also goes out to all of our hole sponsors:
Ameripak, Aero Industries, Axiom HR, Brenda Bowman – FC Tucker, Bright Ideas of Broadripple, Burger King of Kokomo & Muncie, David Bruce – State Farm, Greg George Insurance Agency, Justus Real Estate, Kimball Electronics, KSM Consulting, The Laviolette Group, Lynch, Harrison, & Brumleve, Lannie Thompson – FC Tucker, National Bank of Indianapolis, Patterson Horth General Contractors, Rehabiliation Associates of Indiana, Sparenberg Farms, The Spickelmier Family, Systemmax Corporation, Tim Allen Photo.
Congratulations to all of our contest winners who took home Delta Faucet merhandise (Longest Drive, closet to the pin). And, cheers to the new “Swing Fore Hope” Champions: Austin Bowman, Josh Martin, Craig Costello, and Drew Schroeder!
Don’t forget – you can support NeuroHope year-round by choosing “NeuroHope of Indiana” as your Amazon Smile charity. You can also set up easy, monthly recurring contributions by clicking here. Just $25 per month from 100 people would be an extra $30,000 per year for our patients!!
Thank you all! We’ll see you next year!
In March of 2019, 45-year-old Tim Owen was driving his car when he was overcome by a paralyzing stroke. Thanks to quick thinking and the life-saving work of paramedics, he survived. But the effects of the stroke were significant, initially leaving him completely paralyzed on his left side.
Tim’s recovery has been long and tedious. He spent two months at Community Hospital and came to NeuroHope for continued therapy in September of 2019. Over the last 12 months Tim has worked tirelessly in his recovery and made MAJOR strides. One of his more recent goals – GET BACK ON THAT GOLF COURSE!
Check out the inspiring video below of Tim working with Bart and Megan to get his swing back while strengthening his legs and core on a vibration plate AND his FIRST LIVE SWING at Top Golf with his son behind the camera!
Gotta love it. GO TIM!!
Tim is one of the 52 current clients at NeuroHope that is recovering from a life-changing injury or neurologic condition that we provide with continued rehabilitation and exercise programs. Spinal cord injury, brain injury, and stroke take months, or sometimes years to maximize recovery. Unfortunately, most insurance plans limit the amount of therapy coverage each year, and traditional healthcare facilities are unable to provide continued care.
NeuroHope was created to fill the void in care by offering affordable rates for patients AFTER insurance is exhausted so patients like Tim can continue their inspiring journeys and be in a better position to reach their goals.
We’re back!! As of May 18th, it’s partial re-open for client re-evaluations this week. During our two-month closure we have remained engaged with clients through video visits and home programs. Remote programs remain available for all clients. However, we have revamped our COVID-19 safety and infection control policies per OSHA and CDC guidelines and have re-opened in a limited capacity for clients who wish to return.
Some of the new policies in place to best protect clients and staff:
-Caregivers and/or visitors are not permitted inside the building unless needed for cognitive purposes or to accompany a pediatric client.
-All staff and clients are screened daily.
-The number of scheduled clients per hour has been limited to preserve social distancing in the gym at all times.
-We have strict disinfectant and hygiene protocols in place every hour as per CDC and WHO recommendations.
NeuroHope continues to follow the State of Indiana and Marion County orders and guidelines.
Stay healthy and stay aware everyone! We look forward to seeing our amazing clients soon!
When Christopher Reeve became paralyzed 25 years ago, spinal cord injury was launched into the public eye. Paralysis can happen to anyone anywhere. There are 18,000 new injuries in the United States every year. It is a community no one expects to join. When we become a part of it – the fear, suffering, pain, & emotional despair is more than we think possible to bear. But, we also discover strength, the capacity to overcome mental and physical adversity, and an appreciation and outlook on life we never knew was possible. We experience a healthcare system in need of change, a research community in need of a road map for collaboration and funding, and a paralysis community fighting for a voice for advocacy.
The Christopher and Dana Reeve Foundation has been the primary force behind advocacy for these issues ever since its creation, and it will continue to be the guiding light in the ongoing effort for both cure and care for years to come. The inaugural Reeve Summit brought researchers, physicians, rehabilitation centers, spinal cord injury survivors, and advocates together for three days in Washington D.C. to discuss cure, care, and the future of spinal cord injury research and awareness. Keynote addresses were made by Christopher Reeve’s daughter, and Vice-Chair of the Board of Directors Alexandra Reeve Givens, Chief Scientific Officer Ethan Pearlstein, and Good Morning America’s Robin Roberts.
While still a long way from a cure – the spinal cord injury world is at an exciting time as research and knowledge of both neurorecovery and rehabilitative interventions are advancing. It’s important for scientists and researchers to challenge each other , but also communicate and collaborate for CURE and CARE. In the meantime, the paralysis community – people recovering from and living with paralysis need to be ready, stay healthy, and ENJOY THIS LIFE!
The healthcare system must build an infrastructure for a proper continuum of care to improve lives, and provide adequate access to interventions NOW! That is part of the small role we are proud to play at NeuroHope.
When the injured “join” this community, we realize there are passionate voices that will not give up on advocacy for cure, care, and rehabilitative access. Research, healthcare, quality of life, and disability rights are all connected in this world.
Many thanks to the Christopher and Dana Reeve Foundation for being the force that brings these voices together.
