March is Brain Injury Awareness Month.  Jane Concato is a brain injury survivor and Joe, her husband and caregiver, are long-time members of the Mountain Top Community.  Joe wrote the following:  

“Brain injuries can occur due to external physical factors such as a blow to the head or fall.  Brain injuries can also occur due to internal medical factors such as a bleed or tumor.  The type of injury, external versus internal, does not necessarily define the difficulties/issues a brain injury survivor may experience.  The location and extent of the injury is what will define the difficulties/issues a brain injury survivor may experience.  A brain injury is not the same as difficulties/experiences a person may have due to normal aging.  The area of the brain that was impacted by the brain injury does not heal as a broken bone would.  The purpose of therapy is to form new pathways within the brain to re-learn activities and functions.  Therapies and therapists specialize in many aspects to assist those with cognitive, emotional and physical difficulties.” 

As brain injury advocates, Jane and Joe are available to assist and provide direction to anyone.   Jane and Joe Concato may be reached at 518-989-1019; jjconc@gmail.com; www.brain411.org.
