Brain Injury: Planning for the Future Workshop

Friday, November 2, 2018
8:30 am to 4:45 pm

It is difficult to predict what the future will hold particularly if you or someone you know is dealing with a disability. This workshop will feature a variety of resources and information to help plan for the            future.

As the years pass by after brain injury, a variety of new issues arise over time. This workshop will also explore changes in brain function during aging after ABI, coping with life’s transitions and financial considerations.
