About Beacon Place

Traumatic Brain Injury can have a profound impact on our life. As a result of that we can feel confused, frustrated, isolated and alone, unsure what to do.

At Beacon Place we provide a range of services to help. Some services are provided at our Highland Mills, New York, site and others are provided in your home or in the community. Our staff of Brain Injury Professionals evaluates your needs and develops a treatment plan together with you to maximize your potential and reach your goals.

Structured Day Program Services

Structured Day Program Services are provided at the center and these services are focused on improving or maintaining your skills and your ability to live as independently as possible. In a pleasant environment, these services may include activities that improve socialization; problem solving skills; supervision of, or assistance with, self-care; medication management; task completion; communication skills; mobility; transportation skills; money management skills; and the skills needed to maintain a household.

Our structured day program is designed to be fun and age-appropriate. Your initial interview will help us discover which activities you enjoy and those activities will be incorporated into your plan. The program will be planned by a professional recreational therapist and designed to enhance the quality of your life.
