Traumatic Brain Injury Program is driven by two mandates; reduce service gaps, and improve quality of life. The program provides no charge services to individuals living with a Traumatic Brain Injury, and support to both family members and caregivers. Services include case management, information and referrals, service coordination, supported living services, community integration, vocational supports, and local groups that focus on support, education, and productive activities. Participating in the program people have said it has been “life altering” or “what a difference it has made to me to have that support” or “I finally got that referral from my doctor to see that specialist I have been needing to see” or “I finally am seeing someone who is helping me increase my functioning” or “Coming in to the group it was better than I thought it would be” or “I am soooo glad you helped me with that paperwork” or ” I do not feel so alone anymore.”
Senior Vision Program Assistance is about helping team members connect to places and people in all of our communities through outreach and assistance with people with low or no vision to improve or maintain their self care, independence, and daily life activities through support, education, and visual adaptive aids.
