Side by Side Brain Injury Clubhouse... is a place where people living with the lifelong effects of traumatic brain injury (TBI) are respected and valued as contributing community members.
Our rehabilitation focuses on the abilities, strengths and volunteer efforts of members who work side by side with staff to manage all operations of the Clubhouse.
In this supportive environment, members once again learn to contribute in meaningful ways that carry over to work, home and community.
Finally, a life-changing injury is transformed into a new normal for members and their families as they move from being a medical patient to living a full and satisfying life.
Seminar 2015: Ethics and the 'Vulnerable' Client with TBI-Part 2: Financial Arrangements for Lifelong Care
Thanks to the hard work of the Clubhouse staff and volunteers, on December 4 we hosted approximately 50 people at Ethics and the Vulnerable Client with TBI-Part 2. The focus of this half-day workshop was to educate professionals and family members on the nuts and bolts of designing and implementing long-term financial arrangements after a settlement or lawsuit. The speakers included family members, attorneys, judges, rehabilitation counselors, case managers and Clubhouse staff. Attendees were able to learn about Medicare Set-Asides, designing Trusts to preserve Medicaid and related benefits, and strategies for effectively implementing life care plans and coordinating the medical and financial needs of those who have sustained a brain injury. This workshop was truly unique in that it provided the perspective of both families and professionals, and offered leading-edge information regarding the tools available to members of both communities in their service to adults who have sustained a brain injury.
