Brain Injury Guide for Families

The effects of brain injury often cause roles and responsibilities within the family to change. Family members and others close to the person with brain injury may find themselves struggling to understand what the individual is going through and to cope with changes in the behavior of the person with brain injury. 

Remember, the person with brain injury is also struggling to adjust. 

Family members and others close to the person may find themselves feeling stressed, burdened, and even depressed by the major changes in activities, responsibilities, daily schedules, leisure and support that are required by the adjustment to brain injury.

A solution that works well for one person may not work at all for another. For this reason, the best way to use this booklet is to try one of the solutions for two or three weeks.
