Cognitive Pointers Workshop to Occur in Simi Valley

 

Do you struggle to keep up in a fast-paced world? Have you felt your critical-thinking skills lagging? Are you plagued with poor memory? There are a surprising number of ways to compensate for such impairments.

 

Life After Brain Injury will present a free workshop, “Think Smarter, Think Better” on Thursday, May 18 at 11:30 a.m. at the Simi Valley Public Library Community Room.

 

The workshop will provide tools and tips for people coping with a brain injury or other neurological disorder; folks experiencing “senior moments”; and anyone looking to better handle the onslaught of information that comes with the 21st century.

 

The workshop is funded through a Simi Valley Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) that helps support Life After Brain Injury’s Independent-Living education efforts.

 

To receive materials from the event, people should pre-register by calling 805-490-8211 by May 18 at 9 a.m., or by emailing by May 17. Materials cannot be guaranteed without pre-registration.

 

The workshop is part of an series which aims to inform the brain injury community, social service providers, medical professionals and the general public about such topics as how to access or provide appropriate social services and how the right strategies and accommodations can allow survivors to live productive, meaningful, satisfying lives in the community.

 

Life After Brain Injury is a non-medical, non-residential, Independent Living-based nonprofit that has served the Ventura County brain injury community since 2017 with an individualized support system that empowers survivors to be more self-reliant, resilient and resourceful. Life After Brain Injury’s Executive Director founded the organization with the goal of helping survivors come to terms with their disability and then move on to reinvent themselves, become more purposeful, identify and achieve goals, and build a new, fully integrated life in the community that is neither limited nor defined by brain injury.
