Headway Gauteng

Here at Headway we understand that brain injury does not happen to a single individual, it happens to a family. Nobody can be prepared for this, and life seldom gives us the skills to deal with this type of situation.  The circumstances resulting from the injury can be exacerbated by the ‘disappearance’ of friends and family because people do not know how to cope with this ‘new’ person.
