BRAIN INJURY SERVICES OF SWVA
October 7, 2010

This service planned, coordinated and implemented group activities that help stimulate and motivate their patients/client. We traveled to historic sites, hiking, cooking, newsletter production and other group activities. Being a part of this, inspired me, more than the patients, who already had a zeal to improve themseleves. I thoroughly enjoyed and am continuning to help my cousin who is still a part of the group.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

Virginia, namely, the Southwest Brain Injury Group

Ways to make it better...

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

I don't know. The group that I was affliated with, thought of everything and how it would impact and affect others in the group and with ample notifications of each event.

More feedback

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

the impact that the patients had on me and not the reverse. Their limitations were not a hinderance to them. They motivated the rest of us to not to take life for granted but to imbrace it.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

very personalable and professional.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

reach out to others, who would not have a chance to work with this group. They have helped provide on the job training, In-home training and monitoring, access to Agencies that could help them, access to local agencies that could help them.

Ways to make it better...

I thorughly enjoyed myself and will continue to help.

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

Funding! FUNDING! FUNDING! FUNDING! FUNDING!

One thing I'd also say is that...

There are still others needing the services provided by Brain Injury Services, who are willing to step up and get the ball rolling to implement this program.
