Education and support can help caregivers of TBI victims

When families are coping with the difficulty of seeing one of their loved ones experience a debilitating traumatic brain injury, support and encouragement may be hard to come by. However, with the application of some necessary information, caregivers of TBI victims in California may find that their efforts are supported and facilitated by other people who may have experienced similar situations. As such, their commitment to helping their family member may be more successful. 

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, traumatic brain injuries can range in severity depending on the circumstances surrounding the injury. For example, people who experience a significant amount of trauma and are unconscious for an extended time are much more likely to be severely injured compared with a person who got a minor concussion during a sports game. When a person's brain function is disrupted, some things can happen including impaired thinking and inability to manage emotional functions. 

The U.S. Department of Veteran Affairs provides caregivers with some helpful tips that can make a difference in the way they can provide support and assistance to their injured loved one. These include the following:

  • They should form a routine for their injured family member and keep it as consistent as possible. 
  • They should be patient with their loved one's needs but realize that their ability to maintain their own physical needs is imperative to their ability to continue to provide support for the victim.
  • They should seek out resources for caregivers that can help them find support, as well as provide education about ways to care for a TBI victim. 

The more informed and prepared a caregiver is, the more effective they will be in helping the person they love to cope with and heal from a traumatic brain injury.
