About our brain injury rehabilitation services

Allina Health Courage Kenny Rehabilitation Institute offers you and your loved ones comprehensive care and rehabilitation for mild to moderate brain injury and other medically complex conditions.

Our care combines inpatient, outpatient and community-based services, matched to meet your unique needs.

Brain injury rehabilitation often begins while you are still in the hospital. Once your condition has stabilized, your care team will recommend the best treatment for you. In some circumstances, your provider may recommend comprehensive rehabilitation in a hospital (Abbott Northwestern or United hospitals) to provide 24-hour medical care. Inpatient care also is available through the Transitional Rehabilitation Program (TRP) in Golden Valley. TRP is licensed as a skilled nursing facility (SNF). Therapy is provided at an intensity that best fits your needs and goals.

The Brain Injury Clinic (BIC) offers outpatient rehabilitation for people who have had mild to moderate brain injury. Our services can help you improve your ability to  work and complete school. We’ll partner with you on strategies to improve your memory, concentration, communication, organization and coping skills.

Our Community Reintegration Program (CRP) is intensive outpatient group treatment designed to maximize your abilities and independence. Through group support we focus on your individual goals to help you gain independence and improve pre-work skills.

Our community-based services can help you get back to living, working and playing as independently as possible. Options include:

• ABLE (Activity Based Locomotor Exercise) Program

• adaptive sports and recreation

• assistive technology

• behavioral and mental health services

• pool, fitness and wellness activities

• support groups
