March is a Brain Injury Awareness Month
Did you know that 1.7 million people sustain a brain injury each year? Brain injury is not a onetime incident. It is rather a complex neurological process with potential physical, emotional, psychosocial and financial impact. Traumatic Brain Injury is defined as an alteration in brain function, or other evidence of brain pathology, caused by an external force. Acquiring or sustaining a brain or spinal cord injury can be devastating to an individual, their family, and loved ones. When these types of injuries occur, it can change everything about us and the way we live our lives dramatically. These changes can be temporary or permanent, and may cause impairment or a complete inability to perform and function.
These injuries are complex and vary greatly from person to person. For many, returning to their previous lifestyle may no longer be possible. Patients living with Brain or Spinal Cord Injury feel more in control of their environment, comfortable, and secure when they are able to receive compassionate and dependable home care in their homes.
