Traumatic Brain Injury

TBI-FGA graphPhysical Improvement

Clients experience a significant improvement in their physical abilities, including walking.

Upon admission, most clients are severely impaired and unable to walk.

At discharge, most clients are walking independently with only mild impairments.

Data collected between May 2022 - December 2023; sample size = 34. We use the Functional Gait Assessment to measure walking ability. Scores range from 0-30; 30 represents normal walking.

Increased IndependenceTBI Supervision rating graph

Clients experience a significant decrease in the level of supervision they need, allowing them to return to their previous living environment.

On average when clients are admitted to Casa Colina with a brain injury, they require full time direct or indirect supervision.

At discharge clients only require part-time supervision. This allows more of our clients to return home and participate in community activities.

Data collected between May 2022 - December 2023; sample size = 37. The Supervision Rating Scale measures the amount of supervision one may need from a licensed professional or caregiver. 10 = 24-hour supervision.

Cognitive Changes

Clients experience significant improvements in their cognitive abilities, including memory and problem solving.

On average, we observe significant changes as clients go from requiring moderate to only minimal cues for memory and supervision for problem solving tasks.

Data collected between May 2022 - December 2023; sample size = 37. We use the American Speech-Language-Hearing Association functional communication measures to observe changes in problem solving abilities and memory. 7 = normal communication.
