AHIF provides respite care to caregivers, giving them, at no cost, a brief break from the demands of 24/7 care of a loved one. For more information about respite care, please call Janice Waters at 205.823.3818.
AHIF currently provides two types of camps to its clients across the state.
Recreational TBI Camps - AHIF offers recreational camps that provide survivors with a special and unique time of recreation and fellowship. Currently, AHIF offers a week-long camp each year in late Summer at Camp ASCCA in Jackson's Gap, AL. For more information click here, e-mail AHIF at firstname.lastname@example.org or call us at 205.823.3818.
Bright Ideas TBI Camp - AHIF offers this therapy-based camp initiative through partnerships with local colleges and universities. These camps are designed to help survivors and caregivers learn new strategies and initiatives that can help survivors and/or caregivers who might have stagnated in their recovery after several years have passed since their initial injury.
