Welcome from the Executive Director
Welcome to Beacon Place
As you may know, Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI), through accidents, falls, abuse, assaults or other causes, greatly impacts the lives of survivors and their families.In addition aging. disability, trauma and other events lead to unanticipated and profound effects as well. Lives change in an instant. It can be hard to know what to do – where to go. We are dedicated to making a difference in people's lives- to being a beacon of hope walking togehter on the path to wellness.

We've served a number of individuals and families with TBI, stroke, trauma and disability over the past few years. During this time, I’ve learned:
How subtle, challenging and frustrating the signs and symptoms can be.
How TBI can be missed or misdiagnosed for years – why it’s called a silent epidemic.”
How dealing with disability and problems with aging can affect a person and their family.
How confused and alone someone can feel.
How important caring people who provide support, direction and help can be.
How important specialized, trained staff are necessary for optimal treatment. 

I am glad to be the Executive Director at Beacon Place, a place committed to helping our clients to succeed and to be a place where hope never ends. Our programs and services are intended to provide wraparound care for the individuals and families we serve.

Whether someone has private insurance, is covered under the Medicaid waiver or is self-pay, we want to be there to provide assistance. At Beacon Place we provide person-centered care. Our clients are active, vocal participants in their treatment. We set goals together, work together towards those goals and meet them together.

We are invested in our clients’ successes, in partnerships that grow one step at a time. Our Structured Day Program, Positive Behavioral Interventions and Support, Service Planning, Independent Living and Community Integration Services are provided with the highest standards in mind. Our Counseling services are excellent as well. Our Counseling and Medical Services, Traumatic Brain Injury and Nursing Home Transition and Diversion Waiver Servies  were developed to help people and close gaps in services that have previously existed in our area.

If you have questions or concerns please feel free to send me an email or call me at (845) 827-6680. When I say that we care and want to help, it is a real commitment — a commitment to helping and healing, one person at a time.

Warmest regards,
