The Shared Journeys Center
The Day Treatment Program will be a fully supervised Day Treatment Program available to persons with moderate to severe brain injury. Candidates for admission will be referrals from out-patient rehabilitation facilities or other agencies. An application and interview process will determine if the candidate will benefit from the program. Once the candidate is accepted into the program, a personal treatment plan that includes treatment plan goals and objectives emphasizing the restoration of functional, cognitive, social, vocational, emotional, and behavioral skills training will be developed.
The Supported Living Program will be a transitional living residence located in the Northern Colorado community were residents are encouraged to maintain an independent lifestyle with support and supervision being provided by specially trained staff, supervised by licensed therapy professionals with experience in brain injury rehab.
The programs will be implemented in phases, with Phase l – Pilot Project Day Treatment Program having been completed at the end of April 2009 and extended from October 2009 to December 2009.
Phase Il – Shared Journeys Center Day Treatment Program
Program hours will be from 9:00AM to 3:00PM, Monday through Friday. The Shared Journeys Center will be in a location TBD when funding permits.
To ensure quality service we will provide one staff member for every two to three participants and will make provision for one on one when the treatment plan requires that level of contact.
In addition to employed staff and contracted services, SJC has established a relationship with Colorado State University and will recruit qualified students and interns to assist the staff with implementing participant’s personal treatment plans.
Personal-treatment plans will include:
- personal care
- meal preparation
- money management
- community navigation
- vocational assistance
- household management
- resource coordination
- problem solving skill development
- physical fitness/therapy program
- psychological/behavioral adjustment
Payment for Services:
The purpose of creating this organization is to provide affordable, quality, services so that anyone accepted to the SJC programs will be able to receive services. Fees will be based on a candidate’s ability to pay relating to an established sliding fee scale.
