Emotional Recovery

The most challenging aspect of recovery following a brain injury is often the emotional adjustment. QLI’s entire team, led by our Life Path Services specialists, is continuously focused on helping our clients and their families rediscover a meaningful path forward in their lives. Advanced cognitive behavioral therapy methods are deeply woven into all aspects of programming to accomplish this goal.

Family Support & Education

QLI makes working with the entire family unit a priority. We encourage families to be an active part of the rehabilitation team maintaining a full-time staff devoted to counseling, education, and training services for our clients’ family members.

Transition Services

Clients come to QLI for rehabilitation services from all across the country because of our unrivaled expertise and commitment to getting our clients successfully back home. From the day that an individual admits to QLI’s rehabilitation program, our entire team is focused on planning and executing a successful transition home.

QLI is able to offer a wide variety of true-to-life simulation options in our functional, real-world environment, from simple social and community-based activities to full-scale, 24-hour simulation in a private apartment designed to model a client’s discharge setting.

In addition to simulating a discharge plan in our rehabilitation setting, QLI staff members regularly assist in accompanying clients home and follow-up at regular intervals to ensure the best possible transition and long-term outcome.
