Brian Cody launches new service to help Kilkenny people who live with brain injuries
KILKENNY manager Brian Cody has thrown his support behind an innovative new project to enhance the lives of 50 local people who live with brain injuries.
The legendary Cats coach and Acquired Brain Injury Ireland have teamed up to launch a new ‘Clubhouse’ service for brain injury survivors in Kilkenny and Carlow.
The ‘Clubhouse’ provides brain injury rehabilitation and practical strategies enhancing self-esteem, independence, community involvement, and personal growth amongst members.
The project aims to create more rehabilitation services for local communities, and provide greater access to clinical teams for people who acquire brain injuries from causes like strokes, road traffic accidents, falls, assault and brain tumours.
Brian Cody said today: “I’m delighted to be able to support such a worthwhile initiative here in Kilkenny that will help make life better for people after brain injury.
“Like many goals we set out to achieve, there are often no quick fixes to get the result you want. I understand that brain injury rehabilitation is no different.
“It takes a lot of hard work, motivation and teamwork, which is why services like Acquired Brain Injury Ireland’s new Clubhouse here in Kilkenny can make all the difference. Everyone deserves the chance to live to their full potential.”
