A unique rehabilitation program is helping our participants adjust to life after sustaining an acquired brain injury, thanks to our new partnership with Brain Injury SA.
The Reconnect Transition Program is a 10-week course, which aims to reconnect people with a brain injury, back into their communities and enhance wellbeing.
The program uses trained mentors who have first-hand experience of acquired brain injury.
Our participant Sean Rowe is currently in the Program and finding it beneficial.
Sean sustained a traumatic brain injury in a car accident in December 2014, and his participation in the Reconnect Transition Program has been a key part of his rehabilitation.
“… I go there every week and I learn so much, and it has really made the difference in me coming to terms with my acquired brain injury and taking the right steps towards recovery,” he said.
Manager of service planning, Rebecca Singh, said it is an exciting partnership for participants.
“We see many participants who have sustained traumatic brain injury in a motor vehicle accident and we are thrilled to be partnering with Brain Injury SA to offer a service that explores innovative ways to maximise their recovery.”
