Community Reintegration Program, Community Reintegration after Stroke
Humans are known to be social creatures, living in well-planned societies for ages. We have been so used to living as a community, but what if one day you feel distinct and isolated from the community?
This is what happens when an individual suffers from an injury that causes disability and detachment from society. One such injury is Acute Traumatic Brain Injury. Life post acute brain injury is very difficult and painful. The most difficult aspect is to bring back normality in life.
Community Reintegration is a program for such individuals to slowly become a part of the society again, it’s an integration of the person into the society. It focuses on bringing the individual back into societal normalcy where he/she doesn’t find themselves alone and isolated.
How does Traumatic Brain Integration affect the individual?
A brain injury is caused by a direct hit or violent jolt on the head. This causes damage to the brain and thereby, disruption in normal behavior.
We as humans are trained in a way so as to behave in a society. But when an individual is diagnosed with TBI, they lose some amount of control and become distorted from normality. This can further cause more anxiety and stress.
A person suffering from TBI gets agitated, nauseous, forgets things more often, and becomes confused now and then. All of these hinder normal daily routine and the person finds him/herself detached and unable to become a part of the community as a whole.
