The Belvedere Approach to Brain Injury

Traumatic brain injury (TBI) can be a life-changing condition that can have many causes, including trauma from a fall or violence, such as a sports injury or gunshot, or very commonly, a car accident.

Caring for someone with TBI and dealing with the physical, mental and emotional changes it can cause, is often a 24-7 challenge for family members and friends. You can trust the health care professionals and caring staff at Belvedere to help. 

For many, the Belvedere journey begins upon discharge from either a hospital or rehabilitation center, as individuals return home to continue their recovery. You might notice that their personality is somewhat different, and that they may suffer from subtle to more obvious physical, mental or emotional changes, as well as communication issues, putting relationships to the test and creating potentially volatile situations in their dealings with others.

We’re here to assist with personalized, mutually agreed upon care plans that support rehabilitation and encourage recovery and independent living.

Brain injury and waiver services in the Capital District

Belvedere Brain Injury & Waiver Services is the Capital District's largest provider of community-based services for persons with traumatic brain injury (TBI).

Serving as an innovative model for programs worldwide, Belvedere’s TBI program was developed by a team of renowned neuro-behavioral experts, including Clinical Services Director Tim Feeney, Ph.D. An architect of the New York State waiver program that has become the gold standard of care, his principles continue to guide Belvedere’s highly trained staff to ensure that we focus on the many physical and psycho-social needs of TBI patients and work in cooperation with their health care providers to meet individual goals.

Comprehensive waiver services for New York State residents may cover a variety of rehabilitative and support services. To be eligible you must be a Medicaid recipient and have suffered a brain injury (and applied for waiver services) while between the ages of 18 and 64.
