Brain Injury Solutions works with survivors of brain injury to turn tragedy into hope. The mission of Brain Injury Solutions is to help children and adults living with brain injury improve the quality of their lives and reintegrate into family and community. All services provided are FREE!
According to 2020 census data, 1 in 30 in Virginia have a disability because of a brain injury. Some causes include traffic accidents, falls, heart attacks, strokes, sports injuries, or illness. While many people receive good care in the hospital, most find once they are home, they lack supporting resources. This is even more true for many who already have limited means.
Survivors of brain injuries often find that they are lost and unsure how to navigate life following their injury. Upon returning home they must relearn how to do everyday activities such as grocery shopping, working, and using a cell phone. Even simply visiting with a friend can be a new challenge.
Fortunately, Brain Injury Solutions (BIS) is here to help turn tragedy into hope! Not only is BIS here to fill the huge need of support during a challenging time, BIS provides this support free of charge for survivors of brain injury and their families.
Our agency provides free, community-based case management services, which consists of assessing and identifying an applicant’s needs in any of the following areas: advocacy, housing, financial, rehabilitation therapies, school supports, mental health, brain injury education, etc. Based on the identified needs, a case manager connects and/or coordinates referrals to the appropriate community resources.
COMMUNITY LIVING CONNECTION (CLiC)
Our telehealth program brings our BIS clients together through user-friendly assistive technology and the Internet to form small individual learning groups that provide support, education, social, and cognitive skill building.
