Introduction

Brain Injury Services provides specialized case management to address the complex needs of survivors who have experienced disabilities involving cognition, behavior and physical functioning. This intervention focuses on minimizing institutionalization and maximizing clients’ strengths and abilities in order to be a part of their community. The role of the Case Manager also includes increasing the capacity of other organizations to serve our clients, their caregivers and families; as well as, providing community education and outreach on brain injury. While each person’s service plan is unique, the common goal of case management is to empower those impacted by brain injury and to build a community where every person touched by brain injury pursues their vision of a fulfilling life.

Personalized Goals

Case Management is a collaborative and person-centered process of assessment, planning, facilitation and advocacy for options and services to meet our clients’ unique needs. Case Managers assess the needs and strengths of the clients, their family and/or caregivers and assist them in developing personalized goals. Continuous monitoring and redefining of gaps are essential in the Case Management process, leading to goal attainment.
