Acquired brain injury with Brooke Simon

TRIGGER WARNING, in this podcast we discuss domestic violence.

Brooke acquired her brain injury at the hands of persistent domestic violence. The trauma she experienced resulted in her losing her sight in one eye, and partially blind in other. She is also partially deaf and uses hearing aids, additionally her mobility has been affected.

Overcoming the extensive physical and psychological injuries she endured, Brooke runs her own business and since her rehabilitation she has had to develop coping strategies to deal with her severe memory loss. 

If you are worried about someone, look out for signs that their behaviour has altered, how they interact with people around them and their appearance.
