CNS Programs

CNS Programs can be conducted with different intensity, complexity and frequency in the gym, pool and/or outdoor spaces. The neurorehabilitation team includes: physiotherapists, speech therapists, occupational therapists, neuropsychologists and nutritionists. Throughout the program, the nursing and medical teams will provide support.

CNS 2W - Intensive rehabilitation program with multidisciplinary approach focusing on detailed assessment, facilitation and safety strategies instructions, intensive functional training, lasting 2 weeks. This program is indicated for patients in the early/middle stages of the disease.

CNS 3 /4 W  – Intensive rehabilitation program with multidisciplinary approach focusing on detailed assessment, facilitation and safety strategies instructions, intensive functional training, lasting 3-4 weeks. This program is indicated for patients with moderate/severe disease (with functional dependence).

CNS 4W/8W STROKE - Intensive rehabilitation program with multidisciplinary approach focusing on detailed assessment and motor and functional sensory integration, lasting 4 to 8 weeks. This program is indicated for people who have had brain vascular injuries.

CAMPUS PARKINSON - Intensive group program, based on neurorehabilitation sessions, workshops and social interaction between patients and families, in a positive environment.

All participants will be evaluated by the multidisciplinary team.

Along with the exercise, educational sessions will be an opportunity for participants to clarify some of the most frequent questions and to implement Parkinson's disease problem solving strategies.

There’s also a social program, which includes functional city training and beach training, so that participants socialize and train outside the clinical environment.

The duration of this program is 6 days. The Campus Program is indicated for patients in the early/middle stages of the disease, with autonomous walking (without walking aids) and no falling history.

 

PHASES OF A NEUROREHABILITATION PROGRAM

PHASE 1 - Detailed assessment of patient and caregiver training and teaching needs and definition of the most appropriate therapeutic modalities for the identified programs.

PHASE 2 - Teaching facilitating movement strategies in the identified functional areas.

PHASE 3 - Definition of an exercise program for specific areas.

PHASE 4 - Exercise training program and dynamic program evaluation.

PHASE 5 - Advice on technical aids and environmental adaptations that facilitate the caregiver physical overload and increase the patient’s autonomy.

PHASE 6 - Review and definition of a medium/long term care plan.
