RECOVERY SUPPORT FOR ADULTS WITH BRAIN INJURY
At the Strive Clinic, we never say never. We say, what’s your next goal? And then help people develop action plans to achieve their goals.
Located in Holyoke, the Strive Clinic offers physical, occupational, and speech & language therapy to individuals with brain injury who qualify for services under the ABI/MFP waiver.
Our focus at every turn is on wellness and self-determination as we help people get back into their daily activities, into the community, and performing at their highest possible levels.
Specific therapies and services include:
- Wheelchair assessments
- Adaptive equipment recommendations and training
- Improving mobility
- Caregiver education and training
- Balance training
- Development of home exercise programs
- Increasing independence with activities of daily living
- Joint protection strategies
- Increasing strength and range of motion
The Strive Clinic is designed specifically for those who prefer a limited contact/by-appointment-only option rather than the Enrichment Center’s full day program.
The Strive Clinic includes a well-equipped gym and provides a safe space for program participants to continue making progress in their recovery, supported by experienced professional staff.
