What is BrainCare?
BrainCare provides daily support for individuals with acquired brain injury (ABI), including traumatic brain injury (TBI). We help participants relearn lost skills and grow toward independence and self-sufficiency. We do this through specialized living communities, coordinated care and cognitive rehabilitation with skills training. We have been honored to serve this community since 1999
