A new study out of The Ohio State University shows that traumatic brain injury (TBI) recovery is not as stable as previously thought. The effects of a TBI are felt long after the initial injury and rehabilitation period, including continued declines in many individuals. This has a lasting effect on the quality of life of TBI survivors, and supports the need for communities such as Villa Licci.
One of the key researchers shared, “A lot of folks with brain injuries are trying to remain in their communities and live independently, and it’s critical that those who can help them do that have a full understanding of how their brain injury affects their actions and abilities so they can provide appropriate accommodations.”
Knowing the needs of the individuals who will be served by Villa Licci and recognizing where they might continue to struggle and need extra support will be integral to the success of our budding community.
