Promoting quality of life and fostering inclusion in communities by operating lively residential programs that emphasize understanding and compassion.
Our Philosophy of Care
Intellegis, the Latin word meaning 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 opportunities for inclusion in the community.
Every individual with a brain injury is unique and requires that services be tailored to meet their needs based upon care plans developed in conjunction with the resident, family members, case manager, and the associated payors. 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. Activities are developed that not only increase quality of life, but function in accord with cognitive, social, physical, spiritual and community goals.
