Brain Injury Services of SWVA’s passion is to create and sustain an organization that helps brain injury survivors and their families in Southwest Virginia. Our goal is to make a positive, measurable difference in survivors' abilities to fulfill their service potential and optimize their reintegration into their families and communities. We provide both adult and child and adolescent case management over 12,000 square miles of SWVA as well as community support services in a limited service area. Case management is the process of identifying, planning, coordinating, monitoring, and evaluating services and resources to meet an individual's needs. A collaborative process is used to identify survivor-centered goals, and marshal (coordinate) resources to meet those goals. In addition, case management includes advocating for and creating community resources needed to assist survivors in maximizing recovery, optimizing employment or service potential, and reintegrating into their families and communities.
Areas which are frequently the focus of case management services include:
- Behavior/Self Direction/Mental Health
- Cognitive Skills and Communication
- Education and School Re-entry
- Health and Medical Services
- Mobility and Transportation
- Recreation and Socialization
- Self-Care and Independent Living
- Vocation and Employment
In addition to case management services, Brain Injury Services of SWVA provides:
- Education and Training to Local Service Providers and Schools
- Community Transition Services
- Family Support
- Information and Referral
- Life Skills Training
- Professional Consultation
- Promotion of Brain Injury Prevention
There is no cost for case management services directly provided by a Case Manager. If a person receives a service that is contracted for by their Case Manager, then the Financial Eligibility Form will determine whether the client will be required to contribute towards the cost of a particular service.
Brain Injury Services is committed to streamlining delivery of services through interagency collaboration. Utilizing existing organizations provides cost-effective services to the individual and the community.
