Brain Injury Fashion Show
This very special "fashion show" is a therapeutic event for Rancho Los Amigos' patients who have overcome significant injuries and disabilities from traumatic brain injuries. For many patients, the very notion of getting dressed, walking, talking, and being mobile was little more than a dream that this event helps turn into a reality. The fashion show celebrates their journey in regaining pride in themselves and their appearance and gives them the opportunity to apply learned skills from their therapy sessions onto the runway. For more information regarding the Patient Fashion Show, please contact the Recreation Therapy Department at (562) 385-6323.
