Situation

The effects of Acquired Brain Injury on victims and their families can be devastating and lifelong. Families often feel isolated and abandoned, as well as being unaware of any benefits they might be entitled to. Bones can mend but brains cannot. An injury to the brain affects the way in which a person thinks, feels, and behaves. In most cases it is known as a ‘hidden disability’ and it affects up to 200,000 people every year.

Solution

Based on our own personal experience and the outcome of research carried out by the Charity, it has recently employed a part-time Acquired Brain Injury Co-ordinator. As well as being responsible for co-ordinating the injured individual’s care plan, rehabilitation and helping to co-ordinate all the relevant services and therapies for adults directly affected, she also provides emotional support to those affected, their families, and extended families.
