We are not the only organisation in New Zealand helping people and their families deal with head or brain injuries. There are a couple of us, and we share the same goal. We want to provide all forms of assistance for people and their families to recover.
If you want to take part in this mission, here are the top organisations you need to connect with. It is not a competition, it never was. This is a collective effort to help thousands of people.
Brain Injury New Zealand
Brain Injury New Zealand is all about helping people manage their lives after a brain injury. This organisation has helped thousands of people living with brain injury recover greatly from their horrific experiences.
“Living with a brain injury can be challenging. Many of the actions we take for granted cansuddenly become overwhelming, out of reach, or just unachievable.” This is their opening sentence and it says a lot about the struggles people with brain injuries and their loved ones have to go through.
They provide several brain injury services delivered through education and support services. They mainly act as a support service for people suffering from the effects of a brain injury. They provide essential reminders and guidelines on how to establish and live a normal and happy life.
This is not easy, as everyone is aware, and it takes time and effort to do so. Think of it as day-to-day management for helping someone get back on their feet. This organisation has been responsible for a lot of success stories in and out of New Zealand.
Simply known as ABI, this organisation is more than just an organisation. They are a powerhouse when it comes to providing support and rehabilitation services to people who suffered and are living with a brain injury. Intensive inpatient rehabilitation, community rehabilitation and residential supported living.
ABI is CARF-accredited since 2012. CARF stands for Commission on Accreditation of Rehabilitation Facilities. ABI is one of the top rehabilitation institutions in all of New Zealand.
On top of that, they have their research and data tackling several elements under brain injury. Included in that are anatomy, physiology, fatigue, memory, drugs and alcohol and emotional functioning. ABI has been receiving several accolades over the past couple of years.
They have also been receiving a lot of positive feedback from the people they have helped out. ABI is active in Wellington and Auckland. To learn more about their services, make sure to visit their website or better yet give them a call.
A Collective Effort
HISNZ has worked with both of these organisations in educating people about brain injuries and how to approach these health issues. We are also in partnership with other organisations and rehabilitation providers in the country and Australia.
