When a brain injury happens, the person and their family can feel overwhelmed and often don’t know where to turn. Once the person injured has left hospital, it can be challenging to find the information and ongoing support they need. Below, we have included some links to services and information you may find helpful as you navigate your journey.
Our Case Managers, Social Workers and Occupational Therapists can help to bridge the ‘information gap’ for survivors and their families. They help to guide those impacted by brain injury, linking them to services and resources to support their situation.
- Headway (brain injury support)
- Irish Wheelchair Association
- Epilepsy Ireland (seizures)
- National Council for the Blind Ireland (sight changes)
- The Migraine Association of Ireland
- Chime (hearing changes)
- Chronic Pain Ireland
- Irish Heart Foundation (stroke support service)
- Irish Cancer Society (brain tumour support)
