Help in Michigan for Coma After Brain Injury

Help for Coma in Michigan

By Gordon S. Johnson, Jr.


If you need assistance because your loved one is in a coma, we are here for you. Our words of education and advocacy about coma have been helping after brain injury for decades. Most likely if you have found us, someone you love and care about is in a coma. If so, what you need most right now is a rational basis for hope. The thing you will need help with later is how to deal with the material changes that severe brain injury has made to the person who awakes from coma. Let’s start with the initial goal of providing rational hope.

While some never wake up, most people do wake up from a coma. Even better, more than half of those people who awaken from coma of less than 30 days, have a satisfactory recovery. While satisfactory recovery doesn’t signify total recovery, it does signify that they after extended rehabilitation (and almost only if they get extended rehabilitation) they will be the person they were before the injury. Yet, permanent brain damage will be unavoidable and permanent brain damage alters a person. We hope we can help you understand the changes in personality, mood and cognition that are ahead. You must also be prepared for physical changes to how a person walks, speaks and takes care of him or herself.

We have garnered a lot of information about coma recovery from listening to the family members and survivors for a generation. We hope that we can help other people by listening to and understanding you. In the dark hours of the coma waiting room, the need to know what occurred inside the brain is extreme. To assist with that, we have provided pages and videos on brain pathology. We begin our lessons on brain pathology with a treatment of the uninjured brain.
