Acquired Brain Injury (ABI) Ireland is an Organisation that provides services for victims of a Brain Injury nationwide.
It started in Donegal in 2005 with the opening of a residential rehabilitation service which cares for 4 people.
In 2006 the home and community rehabilitation started where they support people in their own homes with everyday things that we take for granted i.e. Washing/dressing practice, learning to read/write, community integration, shopping, cooking, social outings etc.
Each person is assisted to develop their own rehabilitation plan and each plan is individual to the person.
ABI run day rehabilitation groups where clients can go once a week for a couple of hours to develop their skills, the groups are very much focused on rehabilitation and they try to re-learn and adapt skills that may have been lost when the brain injury was sustained.
ABI are dependant on private fundraising just like the coffee morning in The An Craoibhin, Termon on the 4th of October (11am-4pm).
This will help them to expand their services within Donegal, like the development of the new Acquired Brain Injury house in Letterkenny.
People that sustain or are affected by Brain Injury are quite vulnerable and rely heavily on the support of Acquired Brain Injury Ireland to be able to live life again, whether they stay in the ABI house or get care at home.
It is a vital service within Donegal to many people and this is why we need to rally behind them and drum up as much support and funds as possible to aid the development of the new ABI house.Tags:
