Nina Volunteer Guidelines
Nina Volunteers research and provide the life sustaining resources in the form of the foundation’s “Life Care Resource Guide”. An average volunteer should possess basic computer skills as well as skills with Microsoft Word and online research. Most volunteering activities include developing a list of local resources from individual states. This information is located by our Nina Volunteers, which is then transferred to The Life Care Resource Guide. Activities can vary between searching for the cost of medical supplies such as wheelchairs, crutches and safety bathroom railings for those who are disabled. The cost of these particular items vary by state.
Nina Volunteers also play a vital role in locating and verifying through phone calls and e-mail how Respite Care, useful therapy tools, Day-Habs and Community Care Centers for our clients can be provided.
This guide is provided then to each family and tailored to each TBI Traumatic Brain Injury client’s individual needs. This involves research into medical staff, Physical, Occupational and Speech Therapy Evaluations.
