Helping a Person with a Traumatic Brain Injury

January 2021

Traumatic brain injuries can happen in many ways.  A person who suffers a direct blow to the head can suffer a traumatic brain injury.  A person who suffers from a traumatic brain injury may appear to be healthy.  However, those who are around the injured person will begin to point out their changed behavior.

There are many ways you can help a person with a traumatic brain injury.  If the injured person is married, you might ask their spouse how you can be of help.  You can assist the injured person by agreeing to help with mundane household tasks.  You can offer to drive the injured person or agree to pick up supplies for them that they may need in their home.  You could also agree to relieve the stress of the injured person by watching their children.  These are just a few ideas of how you can help a person who has been hurt by a traumatic brain injury.

More is being learned about the impacts of traumatic brain injury as science advances.  As progress is made, hopefully more can be done to assist those with a traumatic brain injury.
