Brain injuries can range from moderate to severe. The most important element of brain injury treatment is seeking medical attention immediately any time a head injury occurs. The sequence of brain injury treatment usually follows these steps:
- Emergency room evaluation and treatment
- Intensive care stay
- Inpatient brain injury rehabilitation
- Home care
- Long-term care at home or in an assisted living facility
As early in the process as possible, the brain injury patient will undergo acute rehabilitation to regain independence in daily activities, such as eating, dressing, using the restroom, and bathing.
Further rehabilitation depends on the patient’s ability to withstand intensive therapies and resume more activities. Brain injury patients may never fully rehabilitate and they may require extensive or life-long stays in assisted facilities.
