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. Lives change in an instant. It can be hard to know what to do – where to go.
I have learned a lot about TBI over the past few years, much of it from survivors of traumas and stroke. 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 confused and alone someone can feel.
- How important caring people who provide support, direction and help can be.
I am glad to be the Executive Director at Beacon Place, a place committed to help those with TBI to succeed and a place where hope never ends. Our programs and services are intended to provide wraparound care for the survivors of TBI.
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. I plan to post future messages from time to time.
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.
