Life Skills Navigator Activities
A life skills navigator is an important resource for brain and spinal cord injury survivors. The navigator can help individuals with the often-overwhelming task of relearning how to live their lives. After a brain or spinal cord injury, many basic activities such as dressing, bathing, and eating can become difficult or even impossible. A life skills navigator can assist survivors in regaining these abilities by providing resources and support. The navigator can also help survivors identify and access community resources such as housing, transportation and employment services. In addition, the navigator can provide essential emotional support to survivors and their families during the difficult adjustment period following a brain or spinal cord injury. Without a life skills navigator, many survivors would be left to navigate the challenges of their recovery alone.
Neuropraxis has identified a number of activities that a life skills navigator could do with their patients, helping them regain their confidence along the way.
