Traumatic Brain Injury Group Homes
What is a Traumatic Brain Injury?
Traumatic brain injuries are severe physical injuries to the brain as a result of concussions, contusions, and other blows to the skull. People with traumatic brain injuries can suffer from a range of neurological, physical, and cognitive complications ranging from the mild to the severely debilitating. This can include memory loss, attention deficits, speech problems, behavioral changes, and physical disabilities. It can take months or years of rehabilitation to recover; in cases of severe injury, people may require help with daily functioning for the rest of their lives. Seniors with traumatic brain injuries may also face additional age-related complications like dementia.
