From today, 21 August, to Sunday the 27th is Brain Injury Awareness Week in Australia – aimed at raising awareness and reducing the incidence of Acquired Brain Injury (ABI) in the community.
An acquired brain injury (ABI) cruelly takes away many of life’s simple pleasures. Daily routines, work and hobbies can all become too hard for people who have a severe ABI and they need help to do many things they once easily did on their own.
But now, a new accessible garden is giving 10 individuals with an ABI something wonderful back at their Austin Street Alphington home, run by not-for-profit disability service provider, Villa Maria Catholic Homes (VMCH).
