RICHMOND, Va. - Virginir -- Richmond, VA - The Brain Injury Association of Virginia (BIAV) has had an invaluable partnership with the Sheltering Arms Institute (SAI) for many years. SAI features a state-of-the-science 24-bed brain injury unit and a stroke rehabilitation unit. Recognizing the long-term care needs of these patients after discharge from SAI, BIAV has established a support network for patients and caregivers receiving services from SAI. As a preferred community partner of SAI, BIAV has introduced a referral program designed to enhance SAI's continuum of care and strengthen the collaborative relationship between the organizations. During inpatient or outpatient services, SAI patients are introduced to BIAV's services.

A BIAV clinical liaison is actively involved, working with patients, families, and SAI staff to identify optimal follow-up services needed by families. This liaison holds weekly office hours at SAI, makes referrals to support groups, educates on available resources and service providers, and participates in SAI-hosted programs for patients post-discharge. "The grant received from SAI graciously gives BIAV the opportunity to further support, continue our mission, and enhance the connection with those reaching out for services," Said Linda Wilkinson, Interim Executive Director of the Brain Injury Association of Virginia. "Our commitment to help, hope, and healing is never ending."
