How to help your patients and their families

Recognition, proper education, and clinical support can be the key to greater success for patients recovering from mild traumatic brain injury and their loved ones. Here's how you can help recognize TBI and stop its far-reaching progression.

Amramp and Habitat for Humanity
Dave Hoglund and the Amramp Northeast Pennsylvania team worked with a great group of volunteers from Habitat for Humanity of Pike County, PA and a local basketball team to install this wheelchair ramp for this home.
"The family and all of us at Habitat for Humanity of Pike County thank you and your crew for the compassionate and professional way you directed the installation of the ramp. The manner in which you engaged the basketball team and got them building the ramp was perfect. You and the AMRAMP Company are to be commended."
Rev. Niels Nielsen, President, Habitat for Humanity of Pike County
