You are an OT who enjoys working with challenging cases. You remember some people that you treated, and felt that “if only you had a more powerful tool” you could have advanced that patient’s recovery. Neuro-Hope has those tools, so that you can rapidly resume the cognitive recovery of people who have plateaued in another program. If you have the knowledge and experience in working with cognitively impaired brain injury and stroke outpatients, you can learn our therapy techniques and technology and succeed in advancing their recovery. Our techniques are intuitive to OTs because they are based on Occupation and occupational performance. We have built our programs around the needs and strengths of individuals who have left other programs and remain with cognitive deficits and disabilities. Join us and get new satisfaction from your career.

Oriented to exploring new technology and techniques
Neuro-Hope's mission is to advance clinical outcomes for cognitive disabilities in brain injury and stroke patients. All of our patients come from other brain injury rehabilitation programs, and were no longer making gains in cognitive activities that are important to them. These people respond to a different modality of therapy. We specialize in serving this patient population, and have developed new modalities of therapy that rapidly resume patient recovery in activities that are important to them in their various occupations.
Our therapy techniques are based on a strong patient-centered care model. This leads to the importance of the personal technologies that people use – devices, apps, and online services. Our personal technologies provide cognitive support for so many of our activities. Personal technologies become a lifeline for individuals with cognitive disabilities. As new technologies emerge, there are new opportunities to further advance clinical outcomes, which provide increased independence for the brain injury survivor and reduced reliance on caregiver support. When the opportunity arises with a client, our therapists are able to develop new ways techno...logy can advance clinical outcomes, which increase the level of function as well as the quality of life for the individual.
