Traumatic Brain Injury Support

SOAR Fox Cities is thrilled to be the home of a new program, serving community members living with a Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI), as well as those supporting a TBI survivor. The TBI Support Program aims to provide individuals affected by a brain injury the tools and resources they need to thrive, while supporting them each step of the way.

Our Purpose: Support, navigate, inform, and care for our community members living with a traumatic brain injury.

Community Education

In the Fox Cities, we’ve come to realize that knowledge surrounding TBI is very narrow, except for those with lived experience or those in the profession of serving this population. We’re here to change that. Since a TBI can affect anyone, we believe that it is something everyone should at least have a basic understanding of. This aspect of the program includes going out into the community and doing informational presentations and trainings on TBI and the unique challenges it presents. Our presentations can be scaled to any level- be it your Board of Directors, HR team, family reunion, or monthly coffee chat.

For more information or to schedule a presentation, please contact Traumatic Brain Injury Support Program Coordinator, Julie Biesterveld at 920-731-9831 x113.

 

Case Management and Resource Navigation

We are here to fill gaps. After listening to survivors, one of the common themes we heard from nearly everyone was that, once they finished treatment, they were sent on their way with little to no guidance as to what to do next or who to contact. The goals for services include quicker access to services existing in the community, improved self-sufficiency, greater connectedness to the community, and increased opportunities for lifelong growth and development. Our Resource Navigation services can be as simple as a phone call to ask who to contact for a particular symptom, or it could be as in-depth as face-to-face meetings on an ongoing basis.

For more information or to see if you qualify for this service, please contact Traumatic Brain Injury Support Resource Navigator, Clare Buckley at 920-731-9831 x118.
