Brain injury and stroke recovery: Strategies

Many people who are recovering from brain injury, stroke, or other neurological conditions are eager to return to the workforce. The rehabilitation team works closely with your treatment team to connect therapies, cognitive retraining, and community integration with work-related concepts, needs and activities.

Activities are designed to provide insight and increase self-awareness, identify interests and explore practical career options and goals.

MCFI also works with employers to assist with reasonable accommodations, develop compensatory strategies and provide supports for people returning to the workplace after brain injury or stroke.

We work closely with families and referral sources on exploring funding options for services. We can help you understand benefits and can create a customized program for you that allows for a shift from benefits to self-sufficiency.

MCFI has more than 76 years of experience in helping people who have barriers to work prepare for, enter and succeed in the workforce.
