It’s estimated that thousands of Canadians suffer traumatic brain injuries each year, with the majority being young adult men.
Although each injury is unique, the effects are remarkably similar. They include memory loss, impaired reasoning, inability to remember names and faces, physical disabilities such as paralysis of the limbs or loss of vision and/or hearing. Communication abilities are usually severely affected. Some people experience speech impairment. Others may be able to speak but due to cognitive impairments are unable to organize their thoughts into meaningful speech. Some people lose their sense of smell, suffer from headaches or have seizures.
Emotional and social effects are also extremely challenging, as the person with the injury needs to cope with the frustration of adapting to new and difficult circumstances.
Rehabilitation for those who have sustained a brain injury are usually slow. A rehabilitation program usually involves behavioural, vocational, educational and community components.
There is no question that a brain injury will affect an individual’s ability to carry out the normal activities of daily living. At Disability Credit Consultants we specialize in obtaining disability benefits for individuals and families supporting members with disabilities such as brain injuries. If you are living with a brain injury or are supporting a family member with a brain injury, you will likely qualify for the Disability Tax Credit. There are several steps involved in claiming the credit, and certain conditions need to be met.
