The Caregiver's Journey

To the Community

After you have some practice as a caregiver to a person with TBI, you will begin to know what life is like with TBI and what families affected by TBI need.

Those who have not lived your experiences may have no idea what you have gone through. You can educate others and raise public awareness of the impact of TBI on individuals and families ... through advocacy.

When you are ready, you can educate others by sharing your experiences with them. You may find it helpful to work with others in the local chapter of the Brain Injury Association of America or the Wounded Warrior Project on more organized efforts to raise awareness of TBI.

Working with others will bring you into contact with other people who have also walked in your shoes. It may help bring meaning and a greater purpose to your family’s experience.
