Patients with traumatic brain injuries face many potential cognitive, behavioral and psychological consequences and within an overburdened health system, there are very few resources to assist in their rehabilitation. Families ultimately carry the care and rehabilitation burden and struggle to cope with the complex and often long-term disabilities that accompany brain injury. Once patients leave the hospitalor clinic, our community-based service works to reintegrate the brain-injury survivor into their families and communities. Our community-based staff train families to cope with the consequences of brain injury, such as disruptive behaviours and memory problems, and provide care, psychosocial support, and support groups in the townships and suburbs.
