Brain Injury Delaware Community Support

Individuals and their families find that dealing with the effects of a brain injury are challenging. However, sharing experiences with people who have similar experiences can help. Brain Injury support groups provide an opportunity to share available resources.

Support groups focus on different aspects with some emphasizing learning about brain injuries, some having meetings for persons with brain injuries separate from family members and caregivers, some are open to everyone, while others offer adaptive recreational opportunities for individuals with brain injuries. We recommend visiting several in order to find the one that best meets your needs.
