Promoting quality of life and fostering inclusion in communities by operating lively residential programs that emphasize understanding and compassion.
Intellegis, the Latin word for understanding, was formed to address the need for specialized services for people with acquired brain injuries. The motto of the Brain Injury Association is, “At last someone understands.” As such, Intellegis is committed to providing competent professional staff that understand the unique needs of the brain injured population.
Every person with a brain injury is an individual and requires that services be tailored to meet their needs based upon care plans developed in conjunction with their family members, case manager, medical team and other stakeholders. Our philosophy is that the resident determines how much they can achieve in their rehabilitation. The staff working at Intellegis have been trained with a primary focus of meeting the needs of the residents in a homelike setting within a residential community. Activities are developed that not only increase quality of life, but function in accord with cognitive, social, physical, spiritual and community goals.
