Living with Traumatic Brain Injury

When a family’s loved one returns home with a traumatic brain injury, even one considered “mild”, it can affect the whole family — from financial challenges to job loss. At first, changes that normally follow brain injury — especially emotional and behavioral changes — can be to hard comprehend and accept. And unlike a broken bone, recovery from a TBI can take months or years.

While most people who sustain a TBI recover quickly, for some people — and their families — life may need to be reinvented, reinterpreted, and accepted as something different. And although life after a brain injury usually involves challenges, it doesn’t mean life is less valuable or fulfilling.
