If you know a retired NFL football player who is having trouble navigating thru life due to concussion’s from playing in the NFL I can help. I can come to your city and work directly with the player and help him access the many different benefits that they are entitled to. It is very difficult for the agencies that are in place to work directly with the players if they have concussion issues as it is very difficult for the player to process things causing great frustration. Also there is a lot of paperwork to file and they have to be examined by brain Doctors that the NFL care foundation has in place.
Our skill set is in relating to former NFL players who are suffering from the effects from playing in the NFL. Our first priority is medical treatment and housing and then we go from there.
Our involvement with a player revolves around a lot of lunches and a lot of talking about football! We deal with one thing at a time until the player is well adjusted and has received everything they’re entitled to.
Here Kenny gets introduced to his private nurse and social worker that are at his beck and call thanks to the 88 plan that the NFL players association has in place.
In order to qualify Kenny had to fill out a lot of paperwork, answer 600 questions at a brain phycologist’s office and travel to Los Angeles to be evaluated by a neurosurgeon.
This was no easy task because Kenny can be very stubborn and also deals with short term memory loss. I can’t even begin to describe how difficult the task was to get this done.
Currently Kenny is now staying at a boarding house where he gets 3 meals a day plus assistant with his medication. Once he finish’s his medication the goal is for him to be cleared to stay at the Independent & Assisted living facility known as BROOKDALE, who partners with the NFL. This is a licensed facility equipped with a professional staff. Kenny will have his own completely furnished apartment and their is also a restaurant that serves breakfast lunch and dinner. The cost of this facility is $3,000 a month and is covered by the 88 plan named after former Baltimore Colts player John Mackay!

We have a working relationship with the NFL players care foundation and work together to help players get to their medical appointments. Also certain Neuropsychological testing is required in order to qualify for long term housing and financial benefits from the NFL Players Care Foundation.
We take a direct interest in each client that involves a lot of one on one time talking mostly about football and intermediately about benefits. We have learned thru our dealings that these amazing athletes cannot be overwhelmed with details as it can cause great frustration for them trying to process things due to concussion issues.
