BIR hosts a peer mentoring group session for mentors on the 1st Thursday of every month and we have an open discussion and question/answer session with current BIR patients.
At the end of a patient’s inpatient stay the patient is welcome to become a mentor himself. The patient may also choose to continue conversation with any of the mentors the patient has met during the patient’s stay.
All of our mentors must go through the Volunteer Services Department at Baylor University Medical Center (BUMC) for TB testing, application process, orientation, parking sticker and I.D. badge. Applicants must also complete a Peer Mentor Orientation with the Spinal Cord Injury Team at BIR.
Dedicated to funding improving the quality of life for people living with paralysis, the Christopher and Dana Reeve Foundation awarded us with a Quality of Life Grant to fund our Peer Mentoring Program.
The program pairs you with someone who has emerged from the grueling work of rehab—with a similar level of injury—and knows what it’s like to live in the real world.
While Baylor Institute for Rehabilitation offers traditional therapies such as physical, occupational and speech therapy, we also offer driving instruction, aquatics therapy and home-based care that brings rehab to you.
