Brain injury coordination
If you have suffered a brain injury such as a blood clot in the brain, cerebral haemorrhage etc. or are a relative of a brain-injured person, you can use Sonderborg Municipality's brain injury coordinator.
The brain injury coordinator acts as a contact person between the hospital and the municipality and helps brain-injured citizens with advice and guidance in relation to dealing with changed living conditions at home, in leisure time and in relation to work.
The brain injury coordinator does not carry out an actual case processing and does not have the competence to change municipal decisions.
