Please Join Side by Side in Supporting our Members at this critical time!
Due to the COVID-19 outbreak and the related community safety issues, Side by Side has had to close the Clubhouse. Facing a pandemic is difficult, confusing and frightening. Facing a pandemic with a brain injury can mean not being prepared with essential supplies, not having access to transportation, not being able to plan enough to take advantage of community offerings, not having a direct care person available for basic household help and a cognitive challenge in managing this ongoing curveball. There is never a more important time to provide support to our brain-injury community.
The Clubhouse’s dedicated staff continues frequent outreach to each of our members to ensure they are healthy (with a survey that simplifies COVID-19 symptoms); they have enough food to eat, basic supplies and medications; they are engaging mentally in some way; and they continue to make progress on their individually-set goals. Members who live alone or are in a personal care home have been prioritized.
