Memory Loss: A campaign to remember

Memory Loss: A Campaign to remember. ABI Week 11-17 May.

One of the most common concerns from brain injury survivors contacting our helpline or posting on social media is the profound impact that memory problems can have on their lives and relationships post brain injury.

Indeed, in the last year memory was one of the most prevalent issue callers mentioned when ringing us.

Memory loss: A campaign to remember aims to raise awareness of the ways in which memory problems can affect brain injury survivors and their families. It will explore the impact of memory on relationships, recovery and returning to work. As well as case studies, social media posts and press work, it will also include a workshop for groups and branches to deliver with their service users and a survey.

Survey

As part of our upcoming Action for Brain Injury Week campaign, Memory Loss: A campaign to remember, we have launched a new survey asking brain injury survivors to share their experiences of memory problems.

The survey is designed to be completed by brain injury survivors but can be completed by family/carers/friends on the survivor’s behalf.

The survey asks a range of closed and open-ended questions and should take about 10 minutes to complete.

Thank you for your help!
