Brain Injury Support
Brain Injury Family CARE Group
A place for Brain Injury Survivors, their families, and loved ones to come connect with others who have been in a similar situation. You will meet with specially-trained brain injury survivors, their families, and a clinical neuropsychologist. Our goal is to provide support and education in a confidential environment. Meetings are held at Magee Rehabilitation at 5:30 PM on the first Wednesday of each month. Individual mentoring may also be arranged. For more information, call 215-587-3411 or email Sonya.Dibeler@jefferson.edu.
Brain Injury Peer Mentor Program
For more information about having a brain injury peer meet with you or to become a brain injury peer, call 215-587-3411 or email Sonya.Dibeler@jefferson.edu.
Support groups and services have been meeting virtually, via Zoom, during the pandemic. Details on resuming in-person gatherings will be forthcoming. For more information, contact the individuals listed or check back at this page.
Brain Injury Caregiver Education
All too often, caregivers place their own needs last. We believe that the caregiver must ensure their own self care needs are met, so that they can them meet the needs of the care recipient. We are hopeful the links and videos below will assist you with that.
