The impact of acquired brain injury is felt not only by the person but also by their family and friends. Mothers, fathers, wives, husbands, siblings and children are unexpectedly thrust into a caring role. Just as each brain injury is unique so too is each caring experience. Althoughdiverse in backgrounds all carers share a common ground in wanting the best for their loved one.
As a carer it is vitally important to look after yourself but often this is neglected due to the demands of caring. The carer support group is an opportunity for carers to come together to share, give and receive information and emotional support. It is sometime to spend with other people who understand and who have gone through or are going through similar experiences.
The group meets monthly at 12pm on a Tuesday at Headway House in a relaxed environment for food, fun and friendship.
