The Importance of Caring for the Caregiver in Brain Injury Rehabilitation

The Importance of Caring for the Caregiver in Brain Injury Rehabilitation | Surgery And Sports Injury Recovery | Scoop.it

The impact of acquiring a brain injury can be far-reaching; like ripples from a stone thrown in a pond. At the center there is the person who sustained the injury and towards the periphery you can include partners, friends, colleagues, family members, peers and the community at large. Often the family member takes on a new role that has been described as a caregiver.
