We provide client service work and prevention / education within our communities.
When people with a brain injury walk through our door, many aren't sure exactly what they are looking for. Our starting point is to listen and discover how we can help. We affirm the uniqueness of each individual and injury.
And when do do our prevention / education, we seek to balance information about the fragility of the brain with a belief that life must be lived, experienced and embraced. Making informed choices and knowing what to do if an injury event were to occur is key.
