Brain Injury Program

At Frazier Rehab Institute, the Brain Injury Program provides intensive and comprehensive services designed to prevent or minimize chronic disabilities while restoring the person to optimal levels of physical, cognitive, behavioral and emotional functioning.

A brain injury or illness can be devastating for both patients and family members. The results can mean dramatic changes in a person’s mental, emotional and physical functioning.

Frazier’s Brain Injury Program, which is accredited by CARF (Commission on Accreditation of Rehab Facilities), addresses the long-term impact of brain injury and offers the most complete continuum of rehab services in Kentuckiana. Involvement begins when the admission coordinator visits patients in the acute care hospital setting, wherever possible, to begin educating the families and preparing for the patients to enter rehab.

The Brain Injury Program's clinical team at Frazier Rehab is committed to providing the best environment, services, support, and education to assist the patient to achieve the highest level of independence possible.

It Can Wait-Texting And Driving 

Frazier Rehab Institute encourages you not to text and drive. Many serious brain injuries are caused by distracted driving. This public service video from AT&T illustrates the dangers of texting while driving. A segment of the video was shot at Frazier Rehab Institute.
