BIAT can provide a Brain Injury Assistance Card to people with an acquired brain injury and/or epilepsy.
The card has a photo of the person on it and details the person’s name, address and phone number, their date of birth (optional), areas where the person may experience difficulty/difficulties i.e. speech, memory etc. and a nominated contact person.
The Assistance card program is run in partnership with Tasmania Police. The Tasmania Police Assistance Line phone number is included on the card and is usually only rung when the person’s nominated contact person cannot be reached.
