The SLI Brain Injury Wellness Center at Douglas House in Lexington

With the generous support of the Lexington community, Douglas House has provided affordable and supportive housing for adults with brain injury since 2008 in a renovated structure on Oakland Street.

In 2012 Douglas House expanded it's programs to provide life-long fitness for adults with brain injury in the SLI Brain Injury Wellness Center.  Supportive Living makes these programs available to Lexington residents, with beneficial results:
