Navigating life after brain injury A free session for families affected by brain injury.
New for 2024, this session has been created specifically for family members of people with a brain injury. If you are caring for someone with a brain injury, or have a relative being treated in hospital, then this session should help you to understand more about brain injury, navigate some of the challenges ahead and find the support you need.
What will I learn?
This session has been created specifically for family members of people with a brain injury to provide some understanding of the hidden effects following brain injury.
The session aims to show the cognitive, emotional and behavioural difficulties that can be present in brain injury survivors.
Throughout the session, we will also provide practical tips on how to communicate with brain injury survivors, how to deal with common behavioural issues, and how to support their recovery and rehabilitation process.
We will also provide details on some Headway services that may help when navigating some of the challenges you may face ahead.
