Fighting for Veterans: The Assisted Living TBI Pilot Program Extension

The U.S. Senate passed a $16 billion overhaul to the Department of Veterans Affairs, which includes an extension to the Assisted Living TBI Pilot Program. The AL-TBI Extension Act was introduced with the goal of authorizing the continuations of a critical VA program that provides intensive care and rehabilitation to veterans suffering severe traumatic brain injuries.

What Is the AL-TBI Program?

The AL-TBI Program provides rehabilitation services to more than 100 veterans nationwide that have experienced moderate to severe traumatic brain injuries. These services included care in residential facilities that help the veterans improve their cognitive function and long-term health.New York Traumatic Brain Injury

The AL-TBI Program was scheduled to expire on September 30, 2014. With the help of Senators Corey Booker and Dean Heller, this vital program to Veterans suffering TBI has been extended for three years. This means that veterans with TBI can continue to receive therapy for movement, memory, speech and gradual community reintegration.

The Shocking Statistics of TBI

It is estimated that 320,000 current or former combat troops suffer from traumatic brain injury. However, TBI is not limited to only veterans. Anyone who is injured in an accident or sustains a serious blow to the head can suffer a traumatic brain injury.

A few years ago I was misdiagnosed and nearly ended up becoming a quadriplegic. Three spinal fusions followed. I asked my sister, a top D.C. lawyer, to find the name of the best personal injury lawyer in NYC, and I was referred to Jeff Korek of Gersowitz Libo and Korek. It was a tough time for me, but Jeff and Irene were great and helped me through it every step of the way. They were compassionate, understanding and very accommodating, yet professional and always with their fingers on the pulse. They really care about the welfare of their clients, and not just money driven. When I was unable to travel, Jeff came to me, and I live an hour from the city. This firm is well known, well established, and has earned the respect and credibility among its peers. I highly recommend the firm of Gersowitz Libo and Korek without hesitation and, in fact, I already have. My thanks go out to the entire team for a better than expected outcome!!! They get a 5 out of 5 stars from me!!read more
