HOW WE SERVE

Handle With LoVe™ takes a holistic approach when serving Survivors and their families to nurture the mind and body, create economic empowerment, a support social awareness and community impact. 

SOCIAL IMPACT & AWARENESS

The Survivor Card a powerful way to create awareness and give a voice to the brain injury survivors, bringing an end to the silence of this "silent epidemic."

The Survivor Card is a tool that works overtime. It works as a support for Survivors and caregivers when they are engaged in any social activity-from grocery shopping to travel. In an emergency, brain injury survivors are typically unable to communicate their needs clearly, a Survivor Card can speak for you.

Symptoms of a brain injury  can easily be misdiagnosed and misunderstood, and a prompt diagnosis is critical to effective treatment.

"I think it’s imperative for anyone who has TBI to carry an Identification card with them and present it to a Law Enforcement officer if being stopped or detained. Also, having emergency contact info on that card would be helpful or maybe even your primary physician's name.
Some Departments have a class The class called C.I.T. it stands for Crisis Intervention Training and is a 40 hour class that is taught to officers to help them deal with situations such as people with mental illnesses such as Alzheimer and TBI."
