Our group for those with acquired brain injury – ABI Cafe – met again last week. We were pleased to see more new people coming along and they always say how much they benefit from meeting with others and receiving information that’s helpful and relevant to them. The group began to look at plans for creating a local book made up of experiences of those who are living with acquired brain injury. They are also working on plans for a seminar on Acquired Brain Injury which will be held in Kirkintilloch on Wednesday 15th May. As well as Dr Pamela Brown coming to speak, several of our service users will be sharing their own experiences of brain injury – particularly with regard to memory problems and changes to identity. ABI Cafe members are keen to raise awareness of brain injury with those who are directly affected, their families, the public, professionals and organisations who provide support. Several members of the group are going to be going through Headway’s Self Management Course over the coming weeks and they expect this to be of great benefit to them.
