Brain Injury Services
Residential Services for Acquired Brain Injury
Riverside’s Residential Services for Acquired Brain Injury have been developed specifically for adults who are living with an acquired brain injury, either traumatic or non-traumatic. We provide homes in residential neighborhoods where people are part of the community in which they live. Our goal is to help each individual work toward their personal goals while recovering from their injury. We offer personalized care with a high staff to person served ratio and are focused on providing rehabilitation in the least restrictive setting possible.
Each residence has been designed or renovated to meet the needs of individuals with acquired brain injury with 3-4 individuals living in their own bedrooms with shared common areas. Individuals are encouraged to decorate their own rooms and socialize with their housemates. Staff works with each person to get them involved in their community through daily activities, work, and volunteer opportunities.
Staff is available 24/7 and our staffing is adjusted to meet the needs of the individual served. Staff assist with daily living activities and act as coaches and mentors for residents – encouraging safe skill development, community participation, and social activities.
Individuals are eligible for residential services for acquired brain injury through the Massachusetts ABI Waiver. To learn more about this program and how to participate please visit their website.

We are pleased to share comments from the people we serve:
"My therapist listens to me, validates how I feel and then challenges me to see new viewpoints or to take new steps toward my wellness goals. She reminds me that I am not my illness but a person, who deserves a life outside the illness." - Rebecca
