When someone suffers an acquired brain injury it can be a life changing experience both for them and those closest to them. By having a specialist acquired brain injury carer on hand it can make it that bit easier to manage. We know the importance of acquired brain injury support and how being in their own comfortable and familiar environment can make a big difference. Depending on the severity of your loved one’s injury you might have to make significant changes to your everyday life and the way you live, but keeping this place of comfort can be a huge help. Moving them to a different care facility can be distressing and at a time which is hard enough, this is something no one wants.

What is an acquired brain injury?
An acquired brain injury refers to a brain injury that happens after you are born and is not hereditary, degenerative, congenital or induced by trauma during birth. It is often due to a disease, hitting the head, oxygen deprivation or alcohol and drug use – all of which result in changes to the brains neurological activity.
There are two main types of acquired brain injury, traumatic and non-traumatic. Traumatic is defined as an alteration in brain function caused by an external force. This could be fall, a sports injury, a car accident or an assault. The other type is non-traumatic and could include near-drowning, a brain aneurysm, a tumour or an infectious disease such as meningitis that affects the brains ability to function correctly.
At Secure Healthcare Solutions we know that no two people react the same to a brain injury. Some can be short-lived and require short-term care, while others might completely change a person’s abilities and personality traits forever meaning they can’t live independently like before. If a loved one does end up needing round the clock care from a professional, we can help with their needs.
