Life after a brain injury can be full of challenges. While your doctor should provide you a comprehensive treatment plan that addresses each of these challenges, there are also some simple steps you can at home that can make your daily life more manageable.
Here are some life-changing apps available on most smartphones that you can use to address some common deficits.
Cognitive Training Apps
