Although the title of this article is the most effective recovery process, truth be told, there are so many different types and effects of Traumatic Brain Injury that there is no ‘one size, fits all’ cure.
The human brain is incredibly complex; whilst modern day medicine understands a lot more, there is still a great deal of the human brain that we just don’t understand or even have the technology to understand.
What can YOU do to help?
If you find yourself in the difficult position of caring for someone with TBI, we have some tips on how best to help the recovery process.
Look after yourself
There are many things that could have been first in this list, but if you’re sole carer, then you need to make sure that your health doesn’t suffer. If there isn’t you, who else is there?
Remember that just as all injuries can be different, the recovery process can vary in time as well.
Certainly, there are good indicators of time, but don’t necessarily give up if these don’t fit with you and the recovery period.
Patience is a virtue
Looking after a loved one with any long term condition is extremely difficult, depending on the severity, someone with a TBI may be even more so.
Whilst you’re likely to see most improvements in the early stages, it can take years for full functionality to return and in some cases, it may not ever return.
