Generations Project for those affected by brain injury

TERRE HAUTE — The Generations Project, a statewide tour designed to hear from people with brain injury, their families and caregivers about what services are working to help them settle into new lives and what services are lacking, will take place from 10 a.m. to noon July 23 at The WILL Center at 1 Dreiser Square in Terre Haute.

The information and insights provided will be reported to advocates, policy makers, providers, and available to everyone who wants to improve the lives of people suffering from this little understood life-long condition.

The meeting will last approximately 2 hours.

The Generations Project will open the meeting with introductions and information about the goals of the tour and will include an open and frank discussion about what services are already in place in each area and what services are not.

Attendees will be asked to fill out a questionnaire at the meeting and to turn it in. The answers will be added to the report on what people with brain injuries need.

If providers are present, they will fill out an alternative questionnaire and their comments and input will be considered.

Summaries of the discussions and results of the survey will be posted online and presented to advocates, state administration, legislators, providers and others who want to improve the quality of life for those living with the effects of brain injury.

Proposals for practical solutions to the problems will be identified and shared. Attendees will be invited to become members of an informal statewide network of persons with brain injury, their families and their caregivers who will continue to work to improve brain injury services in Indiana.
