Brain Injury Support and Resource

Welcome to Brainstars, an inspiring lifestyle resource, for those enduring the stress of dealing with the tragedy of a severe brain injury in the family – Brainstars is designed to support and bring people and their ideas together. Following our own personal tragedy we felt there was a real need for a website for parents that could offer information and support in a positive and contemporary place. Brainstars offers support & information on the broadest range of subjects such as medical issues, nutrition, therapies, disability & family rights, holiday advice, suggestions & offers, clothing, important funding advice and equipment. It will also act as a pathway to all of those wonderful charities and support groups already well established. Key to the success of Brainstars will be input from other parents who can also offer information and ideas that can help other families. In time we will set up a forum but initially please email us at info@brainstars.co.uk. Please read my blog…
