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.
Ethics and TBI Conference a Huge Success!
Seventy five dedicated colleagues joined 8 legal, medical, rehabilitation and insurer expert panelists on December 5 for a rich discussion about "Ethics and the 'Vulnerable' Client with TBI." The educational conference was sponsored by Restore Health Group and facilitated by Side by Side Board Directors LuRae Ahrendt (above), Jim Long, Debbie Berens, and Mark Gannon. The complex, often "invisible", and lifelong issues of injured workers were presented along with an array of professional and family concerns common to TBI Worker's Compensation cases, creating a more comprehensive,'win-win' understanding among the audience.
