When you have experienced a traumatic brain injury or debilitating pain, it can be hard to sustain the day-to-day life activities you’re used to.
That’s why we designed our facility to offer a wide range of activity types and challenges like cooking, internet research, a full-size gym and a workshop. Our clients tell us that our facility was a key factor in preparing them for an independent and empowered life.
Liz is the founder of a successful executive search firm and the mother of three. After Liz survived an ischemic stroke and craniectomy, she was left with weakness, loss of vision and cognitive challenges.
Before she was injured, she was working full-time, involved with her kids, practicing yoga twice daily and volunteering in the community. Once her physical and cognitive symptoms left her unable to continue in those roles, Liz struggled to rebuild her new life.
Joe is a furniture craftsman who was involved in a serious car accident while on the job that left him with a brain injury.
Before PRA, he spent six months being told by doctors that he needed to rest even while his symptoms were slowly getting worse. He was suffering from balance issues, headaches, double vision and weakness.
Randy joined PRA after struggling for years with his Complex Regional Pain Syndrome which left him with shooting pains from his thumb up his arm to his shoulder. He was ready for change and to not settle living every day with pain.
His medicaid insurance meant that he qualified for our program at PRA at no cost and after he heard about it from a friend, he asked his doctor for a referral.
PRA IN THE NEWS
“I stumbled into PRA and danced my way out!”
