Caregivers of a family member with a brain injury often face many hurdles and burdens in finding their way. The initial diagnosis of injury, or illness, and acute care is only the first step of the journey. Getting the necessary knowledge and support to be successful in rehabilitation is integral to healing and success as you continue forward.
With this goal in mind, the BIAU has secured initial funding to accommodate this great need for learning. “Caring for Yourself and Your Family Member with Brain Injury” is comprehensive, in that, it covers both those effected by Traumatic Brain Injury, and those impacted by Acquired Brain Injury. We have three target audiences who will benefit from the education: family members who are caregivers to those with brain injuries, people with brain injuries, and professionals who work with people with brain injuries.
The program is a four-part, four-hour educational tool.
