Brain injury support group shares ways to face challenges

Apr 2,2013
Samaritan Physical Rehabilitation in Corvallis offers a support group for teens and adults who have sustained any type of brain injury, and for their family members, caregivers and friends.

This group focuses on overcoming obstacles faced following brain injuries, including chronic fatigue and concerns about returning to work or school, household management and parenting.

“There is a lot to be learned from the shared experiences of others who have also sustained a brain injury,” said support group facilitator Rebecca Veltri, a physical therapist at Samaritan Physical Rehabilitation. “Each person and each brain injury is unique, yet there are also common challenges. We share ways to address these challenges.”

The brain injury support group meets on the second Tuesday of each month at 5:30 p.m. at Samaritan Physical Rehabilitation in Corvallis, at 3580 NW Samaritan Drive, on the campus of Good Samaritan Regional Medical Center. There is no fee or registration requirement for this group.
