A long journey begins, to retrain the body in regaining some level of independence. These are the topics being discussed at the upcoming information event ‘Life Beyond Brain Injury’ which will take place in Clarenbridge Nursing Home from 12 noon to 2.00pm on Friday 3rd May. Expert guest speakers from the National Rehabilitation Hospital will include - Valerie Toomy, Brain Injury Programme Manager, Rachel McGlade, Outreach Brain Liaison, NRH and Caitriona Begley, Admissions Co-ordinator as well as Nuala Connolly, Director of Nursing, Clarenbridge Nursing Home.
