"The term 'mild brain injury' can be misleading. The term 'mild' is used in reference to the severity of the initial physical trauma that caused the injury. It does not indicate the severity of the consequences of the injury."
"For many people, there are challenges in getting an accurate diagnosis and treatment, especially when there is no documented loss of consciousness. There does not need to be a loss of consciousness for a brain injury to occur."
Working with brain injured individuals, we sometimes see the person attempting to return to his/her normal daily routine only to discover that they have decreased concentration, poor memory, and altered personality. They often suffer from increased stress and anxiety due to sensory overload in settings involving excessive noise, activity, or crowds of people. These changes, in aggregate, compromise their ability to maintain what was once their normal routine, which in turn impacts their quality of life. Our Life Care Plans address these impairments and obstacles to functional capacity by including interventions such as oversight and supervision services, day programs and/or therapeutic recreational services.
Trust the Certified Nurse Life Care Planners at Equitable MLC to recognize the deficits in your brain-injured clients, and ensure that their resulting needs are met via the recommendations in the Life Care Plan.
