The human brain is the most complex organ of the human body. Accordingly, every brain injury is different and the effects of such injuries are wide-ranging and unique to each sufferer – encompassing some, or all, of the following:
- Behavioural and personality-affecting difficulties; including anxiety, depression, self-control/impulsivity issues and sudden (often inexplicable) mood swings
- Cognitive difficulties affecting memory, attention/concentration, rationalisation, learning
- Physical impairments like loss of co-ordination, muscle control, paralysis, epilepsy, sensory impairment, fatigue.
The transition from inpatient care, post brain injury, to life at home and within the community is especially stressful for everyone involved. Providing a brain injury care plan that accommodates these emotions and changes is unique for everyone, as no situation or requirements are the same. Therefore, one of our Kare Plus specialist carers will come out and assess you or your loved one and tailor a care plan to suit their needs. Once a plan has been set, it is regularly reviewed and updated based on the progress and changing situation.
The brain injury care plan will be designed to support our customers by providing person-centred care to meet their diverse and challenging requirements, aspirations and goals. By creating a stable, supporting environment, we help lay the foundations for the journey towards independent living and empowering those affected, as well as their relatives.
The lives of those close to the sufferer can also be significantly affected by their injury. Family and friends have to make major adjustments and sacrifices whilst simultaneously trying to deal with the often-drastic changes in those they care for.
If you or a family is in need of support and care following a brain injury, don’t hesitate in getting in touch with the team here at Kare Plus to see how we can help.
