Betty Clooney Center

for Persons with Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI)

The Betty Clooney Center (BCC), located near Los Angeles, California, has been serving the needs of persons with Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) since 1983. The Center is a program of the Betty Clooney Foundation for Persons with Brain Injury. The Foundation was named in memory of Betty Clooney, who was Nick Clooney and Rosemary Clooney's younger sister, and the aunt of George Clooney. Betty died of an aneurysm in 1976.

As a result of Betty’s death, the Clooney family decided to establish a Brain Injury Center that addresses the needs of survivors of cognitive disabilities caused by traumatic brain injury, strokes, aneurisms, brain tumors, brain storms, brain cancer, and brain damage from trauma, age and other neurological injuries.

The Clooney family created a Center where a variety of rehabilitative classes, support groups, training events, vocational services, and assessments are provided to people who have sustained a traumatic brain injury.

The Betty Clooney Center for Persons with Traumatic Brain Injury, a wonderful community organization, has been fortunate enough to have the help of family members of people with traumatic brain injury, volunteers, and TBI professionals from the medical, social service, cultural arts and therapeutic industries.

These life themes include: Appearance Health Family/Relationships Sexuality Social contacts Work Finances Recreation Housing and housekeeping Certainty about the future Independence Meaning in life
