 had a Spinal Cord Injury (SCI) and have been in a wheelchair for 5 years and have just moved to Jacksonville. I used to be a Peer Mentor where I lived & I would like to get connected in this community. Is there anywhere I can meet people like myself?

We have an active SCI community in Jacksonville. The Brooks Adaptive Sports & Recreation Program has many opportunities to compete, stay in shape or meet new friends. Since you were a Peer Mentor previously, you may want to continue helping people newly injured in our hospital or the NE Florida area. The Brooks Spinal Cord Injury Support Group that meets the last Tuesday of the month at 6PM in our MainHospital could also be something you would be interested in. Call the hotline for the topic or leave a message @ 904-345-7238; for our Peer Mentoring Program call 904-345-7237; for Adaptive Sports & Recreation call Alice Krauss @ 904-910-9738.

My son has sustained an incomplete Spinal Cord Injury and he’s just started outpatient rehab. He only has a limited amount of therapy available to him. How can we maximize his recovery?

Whatever stage of recovery your son is in, he could come to the BrooksNeuroRecoveryCenter to augment a current rehab program or continue his previous rehab program. He can work with our therapists or exercise physiologist using state of the art techniques & equipment to continue on in his recovery. If he is learning to use his arms again to feed himself or use his legs to walk again, his program will be individualized to meet his specific needs.  For more information, please contact the NeuroRecoveryCenter at 904-345-6812.
