Find your path forward after stroke.
QLI offers a comprehensive, specialized post-acute rehabilitation program for individuals who are recovering from a cerebrovascular accident (CVA), or in more common terms, a stroke. QLI’s program is a non-geriatric program designed to assist individuals to return to a full and active lifestyle. Whether your goals are to make medical progress, recover physical strength and function, improve communication abilities, strengthen cognitive skills, or to simply find a meaningful path forward in life, QLI’s specialized rehabilitation program can be an invaluable step along your path to the best possible recovery.
QLI’s Tri-Dimensional Rehabilitation® program is focused on one clear goal: to help our clients rebuild their lives after a catastrophic injury. Founded on best practices, QLI has developed a revolutionary model that addresses not only the core medical and physical aspects of rehabilitation, but is also designed to address the real-world skills and individualized interests that bring purpose and passion to our lives.
Excellent Medical Care
The foundation for all rehabilitation programs at QLI is excellent medical care. From basic health services to complex medical care, the needs of our clients are met with patience and understanding in a safe, clean environment. An expert team including QLI’s physical medicine and rehabilitation physician and team of dedicated 24-hour nursing staff continually monitor medication, nutrition, care procedures and activity level as the rehabilitative process evolves.
QLI’s individualized rehabilitation programs are keenly focused on helping our clients to regain the unique, real-life skills that will allow them to be successful and confident after returning home. Our clinical and residential teams facilitate neuroplasticity and maximize recovery by practicing tasks that are meaningful to the client, providing frequent repetition in both the clinical and real-world environments. This model encourages functional independence and long-term success.
Emotional adjustment after injury is often one of the most challenging aspects of recovery. Led by our Life Path Services team, experiences and therapy programs are uniquely tied to passions, values and identity. For some, it involves partnering with local businesses and community resources to offer a real-world, immersive return-to-work experience. For others, it means relearning how to ride bikes with their kids. Every client’s goals are different but in all cases, Life Path Services encompasses everything we do to get from devastation to hope and on the meaningful path forward in their lives.
