Having an Acquired Brain Injury (ABI) or having recently sustained a brain injury can have significant impact on person’s life from aspects of their social, physical, cognitive and occupational needs.
Synapse – Australia’s Brain Injury Organisation – offers a range of support services for people who have been impacted by brain injury and disability, and promotes quality of life, self-determination and choice through information, specialist support and targeted research activities.
They offer a range of support including accessible information and resources to help people, their families and the people who provide support to understand the impact of having an ABI and how to adjust support.
One such resource is a free downloadable guide ABI The Facts. Check it out.
