This place is run by husband, wife, and their kids. If you have workers comp or other great insurance, you will be there forever- more like a nursing home. Unethical family
I believe you have incorrect information. You can look at the website for additional information. The facility is run by a Dr. Robert Voogt, CEO, our Medical Director Dr. Howard Katz and a team of professionals which include 2 full time Speech Therapist, 2 full time Occupational Therapist, a Physical Therapist, 2 full time Certified Case Managers, a Nutritionist, 10 Certified Brain Injury Specialist and numerous staff members. Our Director of Professional Services currently sits on the state Board of Examiners for Vocational Rehabilitation Counselors.

NRLCL has a behavioral program, an apartment program and individuals with full time jobs in the community who are living in their own apartments. Insurance companies, Workman's compensation included, do not pay for brain injury rehabilitation forever. They pay for rehabilitation and a transfer to a long term setting if needed. Due to the complexity of brain injury deficits, some individuals will never be able to live independently and may require assistance forever. However, facilities main goals are always discharging individuals to home and a supportive environment. Sadly, that future does not always exist because of complex family situations and the inability of families to provide support to their loved one.
