Darius began his second round of rehabilitation at Moody Neuro in January 2023, and on Monday, May 8th, Darius graduated. In February 2021, Darius was diagnosed with a Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) after losing consciousness due to a moving vehicle collision. Upon admission to one of many hospitals, his prognosis described many impairments including the inability to speak, walk or move again. His recovery story is nothing short of miraculous and his therapeutic journey has been extensive.
Oscar, his father, shared with us “Our time here has been great. The staff is amazing, going above and beyond their calling and caring for their patients just like they are family. Dr. Durand was an absolute God send for us and we are forever thankful to Moody.”
During his time at Moody, Darius’ accomplishments, abilities and personal growth were observed every day. His father stayed on campus with Darius and served his son with enduring love, limitless support and encouragement. At his graduation, Darius took the opportunity to speak proudly in front of an audience of friends, staff, family and fellow residents with a thank you message.
Oscar shared that his son accomplished 90% progress in his residential treatment and looks forward to continuing the journey with Moody Neuro through our Outpatient Program. At the end of the graduation, Oscar offered this advice for the new families and residents, “Be patient. I know you’re scared, but it is all going to be okay. This is a wonderful staff, and they are going to help. The staff makes it easier because you see just how much care they have and the work they put in to help patients recover.”
Andrew returned home from Christmas shopping on his bicycle on December 9th of 2019 when he was struck by a car. Andrew was taken to the hospital and diagnosed with a traumatic brain injury. He spent two weeks in the hospital, followed by a short stay at TIRR Memorial Hermann Rehabilitation. When Andrew arrived at Moody Neuro in November of 2022, he lacked cognition and motor skills needed for daily living. His emotional state was very unpredictable and suffered with balance and coordination abilities. During his time at Moody Neuro, Andrew gives thanks to the therapy staff for the skills learned to keep him organized and on schedule; two skills that bring him a sense of calm and keeps him on a routine. Andrew shared that his mother is buying him a desk similar to what is used at Moody Neuro and is excited to return home.
Today, Andrew celebrates his graduation and remarks on his improved speech, cognition, memory and emotional skills he attained while at Moody Neuro. He expressed his thanks to several staff, “Kaitlyn was great, she would always take me grocery shopping and worked with me. Jason is a really good counselor and Mr. Norman is great.” He also thanks his therapy staff, occupational, physical and speech therapy which helped him grow and overcome his challenges set forth by his injury. Most importantly, Andrew wanted to thank his parents. “My dad was always there telling me to stay with it and push through even when it was hard and I am really glad my mom knew to choose Moody and sent me here. I have learned so much.”
Andrew returns home to volunteer with his mother at the library and work with his father at his welding company utilizing the new skills he has learned over the last four months.
Payne, a 22-year-old male from Angleton, was involved in a tragic car accident in July 2022. Payne suffered a traumatic brain injury that catapulted him and his family into an extensive rehabilitation journey. Payne was intubated on the scene by first responders and taken to UTMB Galveston where he laid in a coma for two weeks. After he was stabilized at UTMB, Payne was transferred to TIRR Memorial Hermann Rehabilitation in August, where he would begin his rehabilitation journey to identify and tackle his new challenges. In September, Payne’s mother, Brooke, chose to bring her son to Moody Neurorehabilitation Institute to take advantage of the comprehensive, interdisciplinary services her son needed to return home.
Losing the ability to walk, combined with spasticity of his left hand, increased impulsivity and extensive memory loss, Payne required intensive focused therapy practices through Moody Neuro’s individualized program. After receiving occupational, physical, speech and neurocognitive therapy for six months, up to 5 hours per day, Payne regained his ability to walk without assistance. He also received valuable tools to improve his thought processing and regain the use of his left hand. On any given day, Payne and Brooke walk together around the courtyard and through the buildings beaming with pride, while also stopping for a quick chat with fellow residents and our staff.
Payne graduates on February 28, 2023, after successfully completing the Moody Neuro residential program. He returns home to sleep in his own bed and live in his room for the first time in 8 months. Payne will continue his journey in the Moody Neuro Day Program. The additional outpatient therapies will concentrate on maintaining and building his strength so he can continue improving his daily living skills. He is also looking forward to being able to hunt and fish again!
His mother credits his progress to the team at Moody Neuro. “Payne’s time here has been amazing. The therapists were wonderful and walked me through every step of the way. They helped me in making big and little decisions and truly cared for my son. This has been life changing to get my independent son back.” When asked, Payne wants to tell the next person who comes through to “fight hard, never give up and always trust your therapist. They are there to help you.”
Ronald, “Dutt,” arrived at Moody Neuro after a tragic car accident which left him with a severe traumatic brain injury. He had uncontrollable pain, confined to a wheelchair and suffered speech impediments. During his time at Moody Neuro, he learned to manage his pain and maximize his time with physical, occupational, recreational and speech therapy sessions. His number one goal was to walk again and regain speech abilities. Graduation days at Moody Neuro are nothing short of inspirational and emotional for our graduate and their family as well as all residents and staff who joined Dutt on his journey. Yesterday, Dutt not only stood through his entire ceremony, he walked out of the gym all the way to his mother’s car with the biggest smile on his face. This young man was ready to face the world. When we asked what he’s looking forward to doing, he said “I am going to walk everywhere and watch more LSU football. Geaux Tigers!”
Darrell came to Moody Neuro after suffering a stroke, which left him with impaired speech and limited mobility. He chose Moody Neuro based on the reputation for their quality of care and had heard from multiple people in his rehab hospital that Moody Neuro was one of the best. While at Moody he met his key goals of speech and mobility. Darrell shared with us that one of his biggest hurdles was learning how to “live in the positive” after a stroke and regaining his strength to do daily activities. His message to anyone with a brain injury is to “get to moody as fast as you can.” Darrell is grateful for his time at Moody and today he graduated with his family by his side.
“The treatments are phenomenal… the staff here knows that everyone’s different, and they have a strategy that can help each one of us through it. It’s just amazing to see all the things that they do for each individual that’s here. I love them all. They’re all like family, helping me to get better – it’s just a great place to be at. I really consider it a blessing.”
“You have some of the best workers here.”
“I was inpatient for 4 months post-stroke and have now lived independently from my family for 4 years. I’m able to do pretty much everything on a daily basis on my own. Moody Neuro made it possible for me to be ready for the world.”
“Moody has been working extra hard to find ways to help me when I get home. I am really grateful for that.”
“There are not enough kind words to express how amazing Moody is. My husband suffered a stroke and brain injury, and they were incredible.”
“My son was a patient, and I can’t express the gratitude to every single staff member as well as students that came through. It takes a special person to do the job that all the staff do and to do it with such empathy and warmth in their hearts. What they did for him is beyond words and we will forever be grateful.”
“Don’t quit. Keep working. The more you do, it does get better.”
“My physical therapist does a wonderful job.”
“I wanted the opportunity to thank all the Moody Neuro family for taking such good care of my brother…He is truly transformed from when he arrived at your door. The professionalism and care he received from all therapists and staff is amazing…Best to you all!”
“You all have been tough and inspiring – just what I needed to get better. Thanks!”
“The residential and therapy staff have been awesome. I think that Moody is doing an excellent job. Every department shows that they are dedicated to serving the patients they work with.”

Nancy (kitchen) is always nice and helpful to me. I’ve been to other facilities, and I can honestly say that this has been the best program. I’m not just saying that this is the best place, I know it is because I can see how hard the staff works here.
The TA staff are really nice to me because they take me out for evening walks daily. When I go on the walks it helps me to clear my head and relax. I was really missing my mom at first but now I see it’s like a family. I like how the staff jokes around and makes us feel comfortable.
I’m truly thankful for Mr. Moody for opening this company.
I feel hopeful by being here and I have changed my perspective about life.
My son has been a long-term resident at Tideway; in fact, he has been there almost since its inception when Tideway still was a humble house on the west island. We have seen many changes since 2001. There were some ups and downs over the years, but James was always treated well, and when there were issues they were resolved. I am very impressed with recent developments at Tideway and James has fared well. The staff is friendly, caring, and accommodating, so that both of us, my son, and I, have a very good experience. The programs have been expanded, and he is again receiving the therapies and treatments that he so badly needs. I can highly, and without reservations, recommend Tideway. It has always been a good facility, but now it is surely one of the best.
“Our daughter Heather has been a resident at Tideway basically since its inception. We could not have found a better residential facility for our daughter and we certainly looked at other options. The current staff and Tideway Program Director are top notch. They are constantly looking for new ways to improve all aspects of their services – they keep the residents active and engaged. It is so much different than other facilities wherein residents just sit around for most of the day. If you have a loved one that needs comprehensive brain injury care, look no further than Tideway.”
