Comprehensive Outpatient Services For Your Brain Trauma Recovery

Outpatient Services

Many Of Our Renowned Services Are Adaptable For Comprehensive Outpatient Support From The Comfort Of Your Home

The Eisenhower Center has an outstanding history of providing necessary and quality driven rehabilitation services to its clients within a community setting.  With this commitment to the community and our traditions of meeting the needs of individuals requiring therapeutic interventions we introduce Eisenhower Center Outpatient Therapy Solutions. 

The focus of this Center will be to provide comprehensive outpatient services (Physical Therapy, Occupational Therapy, Speech Language Pathology and Behavioral/Mental Health Counseling) in a community-based setting.  Therapies and associated interventions will be driven by best practices, with the intent of maximizing every patient’s potential for successful outcomes to their treatment. 

ADHD

Eisenhower Center is proud to offer testing for Attention-Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder for adults and children.  Patients will be assessed using a clinical interview, the Conners Test, and the Amens Clinic ADD type questionnaire and the Test of Variable Attention (T.O.V.A.). The first step is the same for patients who have a previous or existing ADHD diagnosis as well as patients who suspect they may have ADHD but have never been diagnosed.

Occupational Therapy 

Our occupational therapists are experts at addressing cognitive and physical deficits and the impact on daily functioning.  Occupational therapists utilize evaluations and outcome measures that promote client-centered goals and direct treatment. Treatment focuses on remediation, compensatory strategies and environmental modifications to increase independence and quality of life. Our occupational therapists specialize in cognitive remediation- focusing on the unique needs of our clientele. Our occupational therapists are also LSVT BIG certified for the treatment of Parkinson’s disease. 

Speech and Language Pathology 

Speech-language pathology (SLP) services support clients who experience challenges in executive functioning and language disorders.  Therapy goals often target attention, memory, problem solving, and organization, along with word-finding and listening/reading comprehension skills.  SLP services help individuals improve their cognitive functioning in structured therapy sessions with strong emphasis on direct transfer of skills into real-life situations in the client’s life.  Therapy is personalized so that the individual is confident in their goals and understands the direction of therapy. 

Psychotherapy 

Psychotherapy helps people who have a broad variety of emotional and behavioral difficulties. Problems helped by psychotherapy include difficulties in coping with daily life such as the impact of trauma, medical illness or loss, the death of a loved one, anger management and specific mental disorders, like depression or anxiety. Therapy may be conducted in an individual, family, couple, group or telehealth settings. Our licensed social workers, master level psychologists and clinical professional counselors utilize a variety of tools such as Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (a form of CBT), Interpersonal Therapy and Supportive Therapy. 

Physical Therapy 

Physical therapists provide services that help restore function, improve mobility, relieve pain, and prevent or limit permanent physical disabilities in patients with injury or disease. They restore, maintain, and promote overall fitness and health. Our Physical therapists are trained to address issues such as reducing falls, improving physical activity to mitigate chronic disease and secondary health conditions, and tailoring wellness programs for people that suffer from chronic conditions and disabilities.  Our physical therapists are also trained to alleviate pain by utilizing dry needling and other forms of pain management.

These services are tailored to your needs and can be provided on any of our campuses, or may be available even from the comfort of your own home.
