Caregiver Support Program

Brain Injury Impacts Everyone

As a caregiver to a person with brain injury, you are one of the most valuable means for them to live as independently as possible. But we understand just how impactful brain injury can be for you too. Even when doing everything right, you can still experience times of stress, challenges, frustration, and burnout. And it can be difficult to care for others when we aren’t caring for ourselves.

Supporting you is a very important part of the work we do. That’s why we offer a comprehensive, fully funded Caregiver Support Program to help you navigate through times of stress and uncertainty, accept change, recognize personal growth, and prevent burnout.
