People who have sustained a brain injury are often advised to keep a detailed calendar and lists to help them keep track of tasks in their lives.  I have seen the necessity and helpfulness of this strategy up close in my family. The traditional Day-Timer calendars have been helpful to people near and dear to me with brain injuries.  Now Day-Timer is marketing a Brain Injury Recovery Kit for $349.99. 

The Kit comes in a large colorful box, which is easy to locate and contains supplies for five steps. The steps of the program are presented as individual entities, rather than part of a large process, to help increase overall efficiency of the kit. Some of the components within the steps include:

1.   DVD tutorial – The DVD, hosted by creator, Lisa Keller, is used to help the Experiencing Person and his/her family learn about brain injury and recovery in a clear, easy-to-understand format.

2.   Buddy Book – The family and friends of the experiencing person can learn how to support an individual with brain injury with the help of the Buddy Book.

3.   The 4 Keys – In order to help remind the Experiencing Person and the buddy about how to reach to recovery, there are four keys: Buddy, Rest, Acceptance and Routine.

4.   DayTimer Planner – Organization and routine are essential to recovery, so the DayTimer planner is included to help improve short-term memory, attention span and organization skills. The planner comes in a bright orange color to make it easy to locate.

5.   Electronic Message Center – An easy-to-use voice recorder that encourages two of the most important methods for remembering: repetition and reminders.
