BRAIN INJURY SERVICES
Vinfen provides a variety of person-centered services to transform the lives of individuals with acquired brain injuries.
Vinfen promotes equality, empowerment, and independence of individuals living with brain injury. We partner with individuals, their families, their providers, and their communities to help the individual receive the services that will help them to accomplish their goals and achieve a high level of independence.
Our approach is person-centered, which enables individuals to forge a path to a high quality of life with support from Vinfen. Support professionals, trained administrators, clinicians, and nurses work with individuals and their families to coordinate services that are tailored to an individual’s choices, needs, and abilities.
Integrated within our services are the latest developments in clinical and rehabilitation intervention including cognitive, behavioral, and computer-assisted technologies delivered by caring and highly trained staff. Learn more about the services we provide below.
