The support group will meet on the second Wednesday of the month from 1:00 to 2:30 PM. The meeting will be August 12, 2015. See below
explaining Sunshine Home Care Services or this PDF file. The director of Waiver Services is Barry Dain formally from Helen Hayes. In the near future, they are planning to establish a center in the Newburgh area. In the future, we may have meetings in Fishkill and Newburgh, day and evening. Barry Dain and the Sunshine Home Health care organization have a vast amount of TBI resources. We need to contact people who do not use emails. I would appreciate if you have the time to help me in developing a phone tree. Keep an eye on for new news.
