COVID-19 ALERT

In light of the latest COVID-19 developments, the Brain Injury Association of New Hampshire has had to make some difficult decisions and changes in order to insure the safety and wellbeing of our staff and those that we serve. Please note the following changes that we have taken:


  • SUPPORT GROUP SUSPENSION

In an effort to help prevent the potential spread of Corona Virus (COVID-19) in our communities and after careful consideration, effective immediately, all Brain Injury Association of New Hampshire support groups will be suspended until further notice. Ellen Edgerly will be in contact with you when we believe it is appropriate to restart the support groups.

Please contact Ellen if you have any questions at 603-834-9570.

  • WALK BY THE SEA GOES VIRTUAL

Walk by the Sea or Virtually Anywhere – A Virtual Walk to Support Individuals Living with Brain Injury

In light of the latest COVID-19 developments, we have made the difficult decision to switch this year’s Walk by the Sea to a Virtual Only Event instead of an in-person event. What this means is that we will not be holding our Walk at Hampton Beach State Park on June 7th but will create a Virtual Walk where you will still be able to participate by taking a walk at home, in your yard, parking lot, or exercising in your living room. Just take a picture or short video and share them with us on our Facebook page anytime beginning Monday, June 1st through Sunday, June 7th.  We encourage you all to continue fundraising or making a donation anytime over the next 2 months. We will acknowledge the individual and team that raises the most money, the team that has the most members and has the most original name. June 7th will be the deadline used to determine winners for most money raised and the largest number of team members signed up.

Feel free to check back weekly for more updates on our website: www.bianh.org and to find out who the top fundraisers are!

You may also reach out to Lori Sandefur at lori@bianh.org or 603-568-8817 for more information.

  • CAREGIVER'S CONFERENCE CANCELLED

The Coalition of Caring Planning Committee unanimously made the difficult decision to cancel the 14th Annual Statewide Caregiver's Conference that was scheduled to be held on Tuesday, November 17, 2020 due to potential COVID-19 risks and uncertainties.  

Although we are disappointed in having to do so, we know that it is in the best interest of our caregivers, the vulnerable people that caregivers provide care to, exhibitors, presenters, therapists and volunteers. 

In place of this year's conference, virtual caregiver's conference workshops will be offered to caregivers throughout the year. 

For more information call Ellen Edgerly  603-834-9570 or email at ellen@bianh.org.
