The Brain Injury Association of North Carolina wants you to be able to learn about brain injury and advocate for yourself or others. Below are free handouts available to download on a variety of different TBI-related topics.
NEW! Brain Injury Care Binder
Care Binder Snapshot
This new resource is a hopeful solution to the difficulty in organizing paperwork and having a one-stop-shop for one's care needs. All you need is a binder and a 3 hole punch, maybe some page protectors. Other than that you can download and print whichever pages you'd need. When we are organized, we can better advocate for the care we need.
This new resource is a step in helping the daily needs of individuals living with brain injury. Divided into 4 sections, this toolkit is helpful throughout the rehabilitation process after a brain injury. Templates for checklists, questions, schedules, health check-ins, medication lists, and more are available to use for caregivers, individuals living with brain injury, and professionals. We hope that these supports can allow individuals with brain injury to govern their own lives with the tools to achieve their goals more independently.
This new resource is a great find for advocates for those looking to be more involved in the their care. It's often that professionals start talking with acronyms and confusing words that those outside the brain injury service system may not be used to hearing every day. We hope this guide helps you to navigate services easier and to engage in community councils/committee to communicate your needs.
