Servicing Brockville and all of Ontario
Every third Monday of the month, Brockville hosts a brain injury caregivers’ support group. The group invites participants from Brockville, Lanark, Leeds, Grenville and surrounding areas to share stories about what life is like caring for a person with an acquired brain injury (ABIs). It’s very clear from these stories what a tremendous toll supporting a loved one with brain damage can take on a caregiver.
The effects of these injuries can be physical, emotional, behavioural, cognitive or involving communication. While many people with ABIs can continue to live long and fulfilling lives, the permanent damage caused by these injuries contributes to a real loss for them and their loved ones.
About Acquired Brain Injury
Acquired brain injuries, which are different from progressive brain diseases such as Multiple Sclerosis or Alzheimer’s Disease, can occur at any time after birth due to head trauma (violent movement from an accident or assault) or non-traumatic events such as infection, strokes, tumors or lack of oxygen to the brain.
People with acquired brain injuries will often spend many hours, days and weeks in medical facilities getting treatment to help them heal and manage on-going issues relating to their injury. Some of these ABIs were actually caused by negligent actions in these very types of facilities. When doctors, nurses, and hospitals or other health care facilities breach standards of care the resulting medication errors, misdiagnoses, or errors made during the births can cause life-altering ABIs.
