Acquired Brain Injury

  130 views

Hi,

My son was in a truck accident 3.5 yrs ago now suffers from an acquired brain injury. I'm looking for some place where he can meet other Christians with brain injuries, who can hang out and play some games together. I'd also love to form a group of Christian caregivers for those who care for their family members who have a brain injury. I live south of Hamilton on Canada.

Thanks,

Grace

Hi Grace

 

My name is Liz and I am the Regional Advocate for Disability Concerns for the Hamilton Classis,  I believe you were in Hagersville church at one time am I right?

Anyhow, I know of a group in Hamilton but at this time I am in Florida on vacation and will return home on the 16th of March and will be able to get you all the information you need.  I drive a lady with ABI to her doctors and shopping once a week and she attends this group. 

Please contact me again if you have not heard from me as I am sure my emails will be full.  I beleive the web page for the group is Recovery to Discovery but am not sure if that is right.  I will contact you when I get home and hopefully I will be able to help you then.  I hop[e you will attend the Spring Conference this year at the end of April and we can meet.  I know that this is a difficult problem and together we will find a way to make his way easier.

Will talk to you soon.

Blessings

Hi Liz:

Yes we're still in the Hagersville church. Just looked up when the conference is and found out it's on the same day as the coffee breack rally. Now I need to decide which to go to. I do know of the recovery to discovery group, I've been a part of it since the confereneces started 3 yrs. ago. I DON'T KNOW IF THE CONFERENCE IS HAPPENING THIS year but would be sad if it weren't. We've tried to get a thing happening more often but alot of peple with brain injuries can't drive and that posses a problem. They'd love to get out and meet others but can't. Please pray for Scott Faraway as he's the person who organizes this.

I'd love to see many providers at this conference, so when clients need rehab, occupational, speach , physical Therapists, lawyers, case managers, recenters,programs or homes for those with a dissablity,  or anyone in the feild of helping others, who stands for christianity, to be at this Recovery to Discovery conference. It would be great to be able to show families that their are other christians struggling through this change in their families and be able to share biblical refences for encouragement and love. And that they will walk along with you through this journey. I've been looking for a long time for families where we could share, ask questions and become friends with who also have family members with an aquired brain injury. Please I know there are others out there and I'm sure there are also christian families out there , lets get together and talk. Grace
