Brain Injuries: Prevention, Rehabilitation and Community Living

May 1, 2018

BRAIN INJURIES: Prevention, Rehabilitation, and Community Living Brain injuries can result from events like falls, car crashes, attacks, sports injuries, and explosions or blasts. Avoiding these events, if possible, is an important way to help prevent brain injuries. Brain injuries can affect all parts of a person’s life, including growth and development, health, emotions, relationships, employment, money and health care management, keeping a household, movement, and daily activities. If someone has a brain injury, evaluations, treatments, and supportive services are available. These services can help individuals to improve their abilities and live as independently as possible in their communities.
