NEUROMEDICAL MANAGEMENT SERVICES

 

Touchstone's neuromedical management services are unique in that they offers a comprehensive interdisciplinary treatment approach for individuals with acquired brain injuries and other neurological conditions. Services are individualized according to the nature of the patient's initial injury and current medical and rehabilitative needs. Mobility, cognitive functions, or other physical or psychological processes can be greatly affected by changes in the nervous system which can, in turn, affect a person’s quality of life. The goal of Touchstone’s neuromedical  management services is to lessen the impact of  those changes and improve quality of life through various therapies.

  • Neurology: Our medical staff specializes in investigating, diagnosing and treating neurological disorders including but not limited to: traumatic brain injury, stroke, and spinal cord injuries. 
  • Neuropsychiatry: Led by Dr. John W. Cassidy, one of the world's foremost neuropsychiatrists, Touchstone excels in the area of Neuropsychiatry – the branch of medicine that focuses on mental disorders caused by  diseases of the nervous system.  With this specialty, we at Touchstone strive to provide a thorough understanding of each symptom, such as psychosis or depression, which we can then address via neuropsychiatry and lead to improved patient outcomes. 
  • Physical medicine and rehabilitation: The medical focus at Touchstone Neurorecovery Center is one of functional recovery-improving a patient’s ability to participate in all aspects of life—activities of daily living, household management, community re-entry, return to employment.  This specialty focuses on helping the patient to learn to live as independently as possible with true quality of life.  
  • Neurobehavioral rehabilitation and management: Touchstone is one of the few post-acute facilities that, in addition to rehabilitating physical and cognitive impairments, also work with residents with severe behavioral issues. Our team employs  great care to addresses clinical problems of cognition and/or behavior caused by brain injury or brain disease. We are able to take care of more aggressive patients because our team is educated on how to handle individuals appropriately using a variety of behavioral, environment and medical interventions. We excel in identifying behaviors before they get too out of hand by implementing behavior modification plans and having ability to provide one-on-one supervision. 
  • Nursing services: As part of our commitment to providing the highest quality care to persons with neurological disorders, Touchstone Neurorecovery Center has 24 hour nursing care on campus with the ability to dispatch a nurse to the community based living programs as well.  Our nursing team is specially trained in working with individuals with neurological impairments.  They focus on medication administration, medication education, dietary education and oversight from PEG tube feedings to individuals’ doctor ordered dietary guidelines.
