If you have a TBI (Traumatic Brain Injury) it’s most likely you will enter the world of therapy. Sometimes it is only for a few months. Sometimes it lasts for years. Therapies can include Physical Therapy, Occupational Therapy, Activities of Daily Living, Speech Therapy, and Cognitive Therapy to name a few. Because of the duration and intimacy of therapies, often survivors develop strong relationships with their therapists. That’s what happened when Preventive and Rehabilitative Therapist, Allan Bateman entered my husband’s (and my life). Allan sees his client as a whole person and individualizes each client’s therapy to fit his or her needs. Allan will share his ideas with my listeners.
Every TBI survivor and caregiver has encountered a fork in the road that has diverted his or her life-plan. A car accident, a fall from the roof, doing one more chin-up, or a door literally slamming one in the face are just some causes of traumatic brain injury. College plans, walking down the aisle in the perfect dress, or the coveted job quickly slip from reality as dreams turn to struggle. These unexpected life-happenings that divert one from his or her chosen path in life can be devastating. But as Yogi Berra once said, "If you come to a fork in the road, take it." Life is all about choices!
