Caring for someone with a brain injury

If you are caring for someone with a brain injury, or have a relative being treated in hospital, we understand that you’ll feel as if you’re on both a practical and emotional rollercoaster.

It can be hard even knowing where to start.

For example, you may need to work out financial entitlements (and then manage the related paperwork), figure out practical arrangements, deal with your loved ones’ employer, and book seemingly endless medical appointments (not to mention continuing to try and run the house and manage the rest of the family, children’s schooling, your own work commitments, etc).

It is very hard seeing a loved one go through such a tough time – you may at times feel that your relationship has changed. You might also face unexpected personality or behavioural changes the injury has brought about in your loved one. This can be a very upsetting, stressful time for everyone involved. We understand that 100%.

The following link will provide you with useful information to help you meet the challenges ahead and find the support you need but as always, we are just an email or call away too.
