Travelling in Iowa this Week
I’m in Iowa this week, conducting a few evaluations and touring a few facilities. Yesterday, I had the pleasure of meeting Phil Grove, a veteran of the brain injury industry. He works for Village Northwest (VNW), a truly wonderful community environment for brain injury survivors and people with developmental disabilities. VNW is located in Sheldon, Iowa and is the largest employer in town. In the picture below, you can catch a glimpse of the beautiful marigolds that line the entire campus of VNW, as well as many roads in Sheldon.
While VNW has much to offer its clients, it usually runs at capacity, underscoring the critical shortage of beds for TBI survivors at all levels of care.
