Caregiver Support & The Power of Community
This presentation will share information about how Schurig Center designs services that enhance the quality of life for survivors of brain injury and their families. Participants will learn about the services offered at the center and how these services help improve moods, abilities, and foster increased self-esteem. Additionally, we will discuss what our team has learned about the long-term needs of survivors and caregivers in our years of offering services at Schurig Center. It will be a dynamic conversation with time for questions throughout the presentation.
