Advice and Support
Often it falls to the families and friends of the brain injury survivor to help the individual get the support they need in the first place and help them make decisions about their ongoing care.
Brain injury affects people in completely different ways. Your loved one might be impacted physically and unable to walk. They may no longer be able to speak. They might now be unable to control their emotions – particularly anger. Potentially, they might have a combination of all of these and more.
Your loved one may have been discharged from hospital, but what do you do next? It’s incredibly hard to know what support you’ll need and where to go for it. That’s where we come in.
Our Advice and Support team are your first port of call. We’ll listen to your story and advise you on what to do next.
Hospital Liaison Service
From being admitted to discharge, we support you through the process and provide advice and guidance on the next steps for your loved ones recovery journey. We’re with you every step of the way.
Our team is based at The Princess Royal Hospital in Haywards Heath.
Living with and supporting someone with a brain injury can be an ongoing challenge. The nature of brain injury is unpredictable and often extremely challenging for the families and friends of the individual.
But it helps to know that you’re not alone. There are people that understand what you’re going through.
That’s why we run monthly support groups for carers and brain injury survivors. These give carers the chance to meet with people in similar situations, to find out more about the effects of brain injury and how to manage these as effectively as possible, and to discuss their personal experiences, challenges, feelings and emotions in a supportive environment.
Through these sessions many begin to build and grow their vital support network.
