About Hinds' Feet Farm
The seeds for Hinds' Feet Farm were planted almost 20 years ago when Martin & Puddin Foil's youngest son, Phil, was severely injured in an automobile accident. Their experiences over the years, both good and bad, led them to create a bold vision for long-term care for survivors of traumatic brain injury.
Hinds’ Feet Farm is dedicated to serving persons living with brain
The residential program will provide professional, full-time assisted living care for six individuals. Ideal candidates are individuals who require full time care and assistance with daily living tasks. Residents will participate in an array of carefully planned activities to assist in the realization of his or her potential.
The Hinds’ Feet Farm Day Program is a paradigm shift from the traditional medical, treatment, model for people living with brain injury, to a model that embraces a holistic health and wellness orientation, empowering members toward occupation and meaning in life post injury.
Created by, and for, persons living with brain injury; members actively participate throughout the entire infrastructure of the program. Hinds’ Feet Farm is person-centered, member empowered, self-determined, free choice, conceptualized and driven program. Members are self governing through the fluidity of the program by self-designing opportunities to engage in reestablishing and empowering occupation. Program staff, family and professional caregivers, in-kind community volunteers and student interns are guides for members in opportunities for exploration, discovery, confidence and self-esteem in their new identity and meaning in life post-injury.
