On With Life


On With Life began as the dream of eight families - a dedicated, passionate group of survivors and their families, faced with the challenge of rebuilding lives shattered by brain injury. Their dedication resulted in a post-acute program focused on the unique and complex needs of brain injury survivors. Since then, On With Life has expanded from a post-acute inpatient program in a single location to seven programs across multiple campuses, serving more than 5,000 individuals and their families. Our staff are known in Iowa and throughout the Midwest as the experts in brain injury, stroke and neuro rehabilitation. Our person-served approach to rehabilitation combines our clinical expertise with the goals of the persons served and their families. Technology, like our aquatic therapy pool, Dynavision, 1.5-acre therapy grounds, Biodex Balance System, walking gait track system, and FES bike, enhance the therapy provided. Our expertise, combined with the environment and technology available to our team, has created post-acute, outpatient, long-term and community-based programs in traumatic brain injury, stroke, concussion, Parkinson's disease, and other neurological conditions.


Joining hands, hearts, and minds to help persons living with brain injury get On With Life.
