There are currently eight Service Coordinators located in various non-profit agencies across the state providing assistance to survivors and family members. The service coordinator’s role is to work with survivors and their families to assess their current resources and needs. The service coordinator:
- develops a comprehensive plan of care
- provides referrals to available resources
- coordinates services for individual client advocacy
- bridges gaps in the service delivery system.
The goal of the service coordination project is to improve the quality of life for persons with a brain injury and their family members. The service coordinator will assist with “filling in the gaps.” Services are provided free of charge.
Brain injury support groups have been established in many locations across the state.
