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.
Brain Injury Services of SWVA has assisted our family member for 4 1/2 years. They have helped our family to navigate through the ups and downs of brain injury. In our case, our family member had a brain tumor removed, which left her with deficits. BISSWVA has helped us to understand ,as caregivers, how to assist and comfort our family member through her life changes, and helped her to gain confidence through therapy which has allowed her to gain independence. We could not have succeeded without their expertise and care. Please support this nonprofit organization.
In my 4+ yrs of association with Brain Injury Services of SWVA, I have witnessed wonderful changes to those with brain injuries who are living fuller lives because of the services provided by this organization. No only do they provide free case management, but they work diligently to present opportunities for job training and (re)learning life skills to foster a more self-reliant lifestyle. Additional programs such as music therapy and recreational therapy have also been fostered in connection with BIS SWVA.
