Acadia has more than 30 years of experience providing comprehensive neuro-rehabilitation programming in a community-integrated setting to individuals whose acquired brain injuries or other neurological disorders have compromised their ability to live independently, work competitively, and participate fully as active members of the community. We are committed to providing person centered and flexible services that meet the specific needs of each program participant.
Our full range of therapeutic services at our clinic includes neuropsychology, cognitive rehabilitation therapy, counseling and behavior management, speech-language therapy, occupational therapy and physical therapy. We provide 1:1 support to those individuals who require a more intensive level of support to be able to participate effectively in our treatment programs, through neuro-rehabilitation assistants who are trained in brain injury and principles of positive behavior management. Our internal case management team effectively coordinates services received at Acadia and serves as a liaison to external providers working with the people we serve. Our nursing staff manages the emergent medical needs of individuals in our residential program and coordinate their medical care with physicians in the community. Our nursing staff works closely with Acadia's consulting Medical Director, a Behavioral Neurologist/Board-Certified Neuro-psychiatrist, to manage the medical contributors to behaviors that can interfere with participation in rehabilitation and community-based activity. Acadia also offers supportive counseling services to family members of the individuals we serve, as well as a monthly Brain Injury Support group that welcomes families and other members of the community at large. Acadia employs a Client Care Director to oversee the direct care we provide to the individuals we serve in our residential program as well as at our day treatment clinic. The client care director helps facilitate a seamless delivery of individualized, person-centered care between our two programs.
Acadia's Neuro-Rehabilitation Assistants provide direct care before, during and after day-treatment hours to those individuals living in our community-integrated apartments and townhomes, located in beautiful, historic Lancaster County, PA. Our residences offer well-equipped and attractive living quarters with private bedrooms for each participant. Staff assist each resident according to their needs in all activities of daily living and arrange for their regular participation in a wide variety of activities within the community. Participants served within our residential program are encouraged to pursue goals to maximize their ability to care for themselves and to engage productively with their residential peers in both work and leisure activities.
Acadia's staff are expected to maintain our ethical code of conduct, all applicable state practice acts, all applicable professional associations' ethical codes, and ethical codes of marketing as developed by the Brain Injury Association of America. Each participant served will be treated with respect and dignity and never subjected to punishment, coercion or restraint. All information concerning the provision of services and financial costs incurred will be disclosed to the participant. A copy of Acadia's policy on ethics is available to all participants served and their family members or support systems prior to or any time during or after receiving services from Acadia.
Acadia makes efforts to meet the needs of family members of the individuals we serve. Our Clinical Director, Director of Neuropsychology and Counselors are available to family members and significant others, and offer opportunities to learn about cognitive, behavioral, physical and social aspects of brain injury. They can teach more effective ways to intervene when an individual with a brain injury or other neurological disorders presents with challenging behaviors, and can assist family members to accept, adjust to and manage the challenges that these conditions bring to family functioning. Additionally, we offer a monthly support group for members of the community whose lives are affected by brain injury. Please contact Kathleen, group facilitator at 717-394-3466 x 173 for more information about the monthly support group.
