Acquired Brain Injury Ireland (ABI Ireland) has opened a new pilot Clubhouse for brain injury survivors in Navan, Co. Meath (Thursday, 14th September).
The opening has been welcomed by brain injury survivors, families and carers across the county, and is the first brain injury Clubhouse in Meath.
The day facility will provide peer support, group and cognitive rehabilitation to help brain injury survivors to build independence and learn new skills. Weekly activities will vary from art and yoga to history and woodwork – covering educational, social and cognitive rehabilitation.
This marks the opening of our 17th Clubhouse in Ireland and it is expected to support approximately 48 survivors each week.
We are dedicating this service to the memories of former ABI Ireland service users Marie Nagle and Aisling Brady.
Our Meath Case Manager Sinead Crawley explained the importance of the Clubhouse at the opening event:
