Head Injury Community Services (HICS) is funded by the Statewide Head Injury Program (SHIP) of the Massachusetts Rehabilitation Commission. The HICS program is located in Quincy. HICS staff provides opportunities for consumers to develop and build on a variety of life skills; important to the individual's needs as indicated in the Individualized Service Plan (ISP). Consumers have the opportunity to use these skills in their home, community group setting and on a one-to-one basis whenever possible. These skills include: independent living skills, social skills, recreation and leisure, prevocational health and wellness, and case management services.
To be eligible for this program an individual must be at least 22 years of age, medically stable, continent of bowel and bladder or have a personal attendant available to meet these needs, and to be able to function from the services provided.
Referrals to this program are made by the Statewide Head Injury Program of the Massachusetts Rehabilitation Commission. This agency also determines eligibility.
Recreation Program is designed to provide social and recreational opportunities for individuals with a traumatic or acquired brain injury. The program offers structured leisurely activities on-site in Quincy and in the community. Events are held one evening per week and one weekend a month. It does not cost anything to join this program, however, participants are expected to pay their own for events.
All participants must be at least 18 years old, have a brain injury, be medically and behaviorally stable, independent in self care or have a personal care attendant available to assist in meeting these needs at events, have transportation to and from the program site and/or activity, and be able to independently manage money.
