The Right Choice for Your Recovery Journey

For over 30 years, Program Director Caroline Feller, MS, OT, CBIST, has helped those who have sustained brain injuries regain their independence and become the best version of themselves. Together with an experienced interdisciplinary team, the program is available at C.O.R.E Brain Injury Rehab.

Our C.O.R.E. Brain Injury Rehab in Cedarburg is one of two post-acute neuro-rehabilitation certified programs in the state of Wisconsin. We focus on serving adults who have sustained a traumatic brain injury by providing the care they need to reach their highest level of independence and to achieve long-term success.

We recognize the challenges associated with a traumatic brain injury. Our physicians, therapists, nurses, and support staff assess each individual’s unique injury, functional level, and personal goals, and work together to develop a comprehensive treatment plan.

Compassionate. Optimistic.
Recovery. Exceptional.

Family is important. We focus on integrating family, friends, and loved ones in the treatment plan, offering support, compassion, and education. Together, we are able to help each individual with a brain injury regain the self-confidence to move on to the next stage of recovery.

The environment in which individuals are treated is important to their long-term success. Our secure, home-like center is located on a tree-lined property, within walking distance to the village of Cedarburg. Our close proximity to neighborhood activities and social outings affords us the opportunity to develop and strengthen the skills each individual needs to safely re-enter their communities and their lives.

I highly recommend it and am grateful to Caroline and the staff for my recovery."

"What we liked best about the brain injury rehab program in Cedarburg was the consistent daily therapy schedules and the team. We also loved the atmosphere. Being a smaller unit brought a feeling of family and belonging - not just for my husband. The belongingness extended to all families and staff. Everyone takes care of each other."

"I love my room and the fact that I am gaining the ability to ask for help if I need it. I am proud of my hard work becoming more independent to go home."

"I enjoy the people here because they are energetic and likable."

"I was in a terrible car accident and my family was told I may not make it. I got a second chance at life. The Brain Injury team never gave up on me and pushed me to be my best. I am forever grateful to them."

"Caroline told us at the beginning of this it would be a marathon, not a sprint. She always provided hope and support as we moved through the rehab process. Even in the hard times, she is there for you. Caroline and her team are with you every step of the way."

My husband was a patient on the Brain Injury Unit for a little over a year after spending nine months in hospitals and inpatient Acute Rehab. I went to visit him every day, which allowed me to get to know the program and staff very well. My husband went from near comatose to walking with assistance, navigating his way around and improving in areas that we were told he never would. I am so happy I was introduced to Caroline – she has the vision to feed into TBI survivors and their families' optimism. Thank you so much for all you have done! A special thank you to Caroline for your constant support.

Simplified Brain-Behavior Relationships

The brain controls important functions like movement, digestion, breathing, and sensory perception (for example, sight, touch, and taste). It also controls higher functions like thinking, learning, and emotions. We feel it is essential for both the individual with the brain injury and their loved ones to understand the functional areas of the brain to help guide them through the recovery process.

Frontal Lobe: Initiation, problem-solving, judgment, inhibition of behavior, planning/anticipation, self-monitoring, motor planning, personality/emotions, awareness of abilities/limitations, organization, attention/concentration, mental flexibility, speaking

Temporal Lobe: Memory, hearing, understanding language, organization, and sequencing

Brain Stem: Breathing, heart rate, arousal/consciousness, sleep/wake functions, attention/concentration

Cerebellum: Balance, coordination, skilled motor activity

Occipital Lobe: Vision

Parietal Lobe: Sense of touch, differentiation: size/shape/color, spatial perception, visual perception
