Brain Injury Care Provider

How can you support someone with a brain injury?

As you can imagine, the impact of a brain injury on an individual can be life-altering.

Depending on the severity of the injury and which area of the brain has been impacted, movement, personality, speech and mental functioning could be affected.

How severe is the injury?

Before being able to tailor your support to the individual, you must first understand what difficulties they are experiencing.

There are two causes of brain injury; an acquired brain injury (ABI) which is caused by a medical condition, including a stroke or a brain tumour, or a traumatic brain injury (TBI) which is caused by physical trauma to the head.

As mentioned, the brain region that has been damaged will influence how the individual is affected.

One of the most well-known examples of trauma to the frontal lobe is Phineas Gage, who experienced a complete change in his personality and behaviour after suffering a traumatic brain injury.

Trauma to other brain areas can cause issues with cognition, such as concentration and thinking. Other physical symptoms include mobility problems, fatigue, and headaches.

With severe brain injuries, the person may even experience periods of unconsciousness.

How can you tailor support?

Due to the complex nature of brain injuries, you must tailor the support that you give to the individual.

No two cases are the same, so the path to rehabilitation will vary between people.
