Pate Rehab helped our son get back on
his feet again after he suffered a traumatic brain injury in 2011. When he first went to Pate in November 2011, he was stuck in a wheel chair, forced to wear a rubber helmet to protect his head and he could not remember one minute to the next.
By the end of February 2012, he was walking with a walker, his memory was much improved and he was able to bathe and dress himself. Today, our son is still going to rehab a few hours a week, but he is able to cook his own meals, he walks with a cane and he has a girlfriend.
When his accident first happened, the doctors gave us very little hope for any recovery beyond his vegetative state. Along the way, our son has beaten the odds, and we know that he would never have recovered as far as he has to date without the caring expertise of Pate Rehab.
Can't say enough good things about Pate. They gave me back my son. Thank you for your dedication, love, hard work and commitment. You are all appreciated very much!
Celebrating accomplishments. What a wonderful group of professionals. This week my husband took DART to work. He can get in and out of a car, walk into a restaurant and have dinner, and talk to his friends on the phone. These things weren't possible prior to going to Pate. We will always be grateful for their contributions to his healing.
Great Place. Our family can't say enough good things about Pate. Our son was there after a devastating car accident. The case managers at the hospital really built Pate up and Pate didn't dissapoint. Pate has a lot of neuropsychologists that really helped identify exactly what was happening in our sons brain. That explained why our son was experiencing some of the problems he was having and how best to treat them. The therapists were wonderful. They treated our son very respectfully, and encouraged him to persevere through treatment he didn't always recognize he needed. Our son made more progress than we could have ever hoped for. I can't thank the wonderful staff at Pate enough.
Pate treats patients with kindness and respect. My wife was there last year. As far as I'm concerned, the staff walk on water. She could say thank you all day and it wouldn't be enough. The rehab techs were wonderful, and treated all the patients with kindness and compassion. They all worked together as a team. My wife misses being there.
WE ARE EXPANDING TO THE FORT WORTH AREA!.
Pate Rehabilitation’s Fort Worth Facilities
on Schedule for Phased 2012 Opening
New location extends the availability of
Pate’s evidence-based therapy programs for individuals with acquired brain injuries
DALLAS—February 13, 2012— Pate Rehabilitation, delivering evidence-based treatment and support programs for individuals recovering from acquired brain injuries, announced today that construction of its new Fort Worth residential and rehabilitation facilities is on schedule for a phased opening this year. The new facilities will make comprehensive therapy services more accessible to patients who find it challenging to travel for treatment at Pate’s existing locations in Dallas and Anna.
“Individuals with acquired brain injuries and their families face unique and, typically, long-term challenges,” says Kent Hayden, president of Pate Rehabilitation. “It’s critical that programs and services supporting their recovery are convenient. We identified a lack of treatment options in Fort Worth and are confident this new facility will help fill an important need.”
Pate anticipates treating approximately 40 patients a day at the Fort Worth campus, which will occupy 16 acres of land in the city’s eastern corridor. The residence is scheduled to open in late spring 2012, while the rehabilitation center is scheduled for completion later this year. To better serve the Fort Worth population in the interim, Pate has recently opened a 7,300-square-foot temporary facility in Watauga—located at 8317 Whitley Place, Watauga, TX 76148—where patients are now being seen for daily treatments.
OMG BAD. Their philosphy for treatment is to punish and to disapline and medicate, medicate, medicate. Like in the nursing homes where the old people sit around and just stare like zombies. That way they dont cause any trouble. THERE IS NOT A MD DOCTOR AT FACILITY AND COME ONCE A WEEK AND ROTATE OUR BETWEEN ALL THE OTHER PATIENTS TO SEE HIM ONCE A MONTH. Some nurse lady makes the call on what medication she want you to be on but everyone better be on medication. This is a behavior modification management rehab . Many of the patients are nice folks but are treated like we were mentally retarded instead of having an injury. Treated to feel less then a person kind of like stripping you down to non entity like they do in prison. And an exercise is to write on a piece of paper over over again "I AM BRAIN INJURED" . The other word I heard on a daily basis is risk for elopement. What in the heck does that mean I am an adult and not a prisoner in boot camp learning a lesson. Most of the people who work with the patients in the house are very young and have too much responsiblitiy . Constantly bedgering someone for misbehaving. We have a brain injury and are not juveniles delinquents.
Not such a wonderful place. Every night sat around all night and ate lots of food and look at each other or watched Television.
Brain injury rehabilitation. Has wonderful well educated and trained staff. Very efficient in dealing with matters that arise with unpredictable brain injury patients. Patients are watched very closely to insure their safety but at the same time given freedom to do what they are capable on their own. My son has shown great improvement in a short time. Staff recognizes and address patients need without prompting, by knowing each patient as indiviuals. Regular outings and activities for patients. Strive to do things that patients enjoy. Nurse on site at all times and Dr. can be reached at all times. All patients are past need of hospital setting by the time of entering program. My son has done wonderful and loved it and benefited greatly. I would recommend this to anyone who has had the nightmare of a brain injury. The staff is wonderful and do anything in the world to help your loved one move forward.
NO NO NO. Comparable to a State Hospital for the mentally impaired.
