Objectives of DVRC

Delaware Valley Residential Care (DVRC) provides post acute, community based rehabilitation services for survivors of brain injury. We serve persons with traumatic and acquired brain injuries. DVRC is licensed as a Personal Care Home in the state of Pennsylvania by the Bureau of Human Services Licensing.

Residents served are men and woman aged 18 and older who, as a result of their brain injury may have physical, cognitive, emotional, and behavioral changes which require a supported living environment. These persons may be challenged by difficulty with attention and concentration, memory, organizational skills, perception, expressing feelings, inappropriate behaviors, and physical impairments.

DVRC programs are designed to provide adult survivors of brain injury with resources and support to live as independently as possible. Our services are highly individualized based on needs, desires and level of functioning and are carefully planned with respect to helping residents regain essential skills.











Delaware Valley Residential Care offers two programs geared toward the rehabilitation and integration of our program participants and residents.
