Welcome to our apartments in SE Portland!

“Residential Living” can mean something a little different to each person. The Residential Community at BRN is designed so that each person receives the needed support to experience the highest levels of independence while also experiencing a high quality of life.

Because we have apartment living (1 & 2 bedroom units) we can focus on functional independence, quality of life, and whenever possible a return to work.

It is noteworthy that some people call our Residential Community “home” for a few months and some people call it “home” for years. 
What happens day to day you may ask... regaining or maintaining independence with ADL (personal care / grooming), IADL (community access, cooking, cleaning, etc) and when possible get-back-to work routines!

All too often people are discharged from the hospital to their couch (or the bed of a nursing facility). This is a problem because people don't get better on the couch.  and with brain injury recovery, time is of the essence!

At BRN we work with people to gain the necessary skills to reconnect with their community (family, friends and work), to create a positive outlook and to keep journeying forward in life.

Regardless for how long BRN is your home we will keep you at the center of care and rehab while pursuing life to the fullest! 

Fall brings browns, reds, yellows and gold to Portland.
