Acquired Brain Injury Waiver
What is an ABI (Acquired Brain Injury)?
An acquired brain injury (ABI) is the result of damage to the brain by injury or illness. A blow to the head, disease, infection, lack of oxygen, penetration of the skull, violent shaking (e.g., Shaken Baby Syndrome, whiplash), and substance abuse can all cause an ABI. The actual injury to the brain results when bruising, bleeding, swelling, fever, lack of blood or oxygen, shearing or tearing of cells, and/or increased pressure occurs.
The ABI WAIVER PROGRAM was created to help people living with brain injuries recover and live outside of institutional settings. People living with brain injuries deserve to choose who they share time with and where they live. The program was created to protect the civil rights of people recovering.
