The Role of Family-Centered Care

Learn why educating the whole family about TBI is important.

The family plays a critical role in people with brain injury, and there's good research to show that people who have good family support are more likely to be able to get back into the community are more likely to get back to their job, are more likely to have a happier lifestyle overall. Why? People with brain injury need those supports around them, need the people who cared for them before to continue to care for them, to maximize their chance of a good recovery, to make sure to also be their advocate. And people after brain injury really need advocates, and family, obviously, is going to most likely be your best advocate for you.
