I am delighted to announce the publication of the following Headway factsheets:
•Balance problems and dizziness after brain injury: causes and treatment
•Balance problems and dizziness after brain injury: tips and coping strategies
•A guide to disability discrimination law
•A guide to Disabled Facilities Grants
•A guide to insurance policies after brain injury
You can download the factsheets at headway.org.uk/factsheets.a...
The two factsheets about balance problems were inspired by a Headway service user with balance problems who wanted to share the coping strategies he has developed over the years. The service user set up threads on HealthUnlocked for others to share their own tips and I adapted and incorporated a lot of material from the replies into the 'Tips and strategies' factsheet.
The information provided by HealthUnlocked users was great and allowed us to create what we hope will be a valuable resource. I have acknowledged and thanked everyone at the end of the factsheet.
A big thanks to everyone who helped.
