I need to be strong, I need to be understanding; I need to be so many things for this person, I often forget what I need for me!
Beth, like so many mothers, wives, sisters, or friends, take on the role as a caregiver for someone they care about, but often find themselves overwhelmed by how much they have to expend themselves to that particular person’s needs. All while slowly beginning to neglect their own needs. Often this leads to feeling burnt out, depressed, and ready to call it quits!
The team at the Brain Injury Alliance of CT understands these feelings, and are always here to help! Like Beth, BIAC routinely fields calls and online requests from caregivers that are overwhelmed and in need of help! Beth was caring for her elderly mother who sustained a brain injury from a no-fault car crash.
The BIAC team provided Beth with insightful information for caregivers on how to understand brain injuries, and how to be helpful to her loved one without sacrificing her happiness. If you or someone you know is caring for a brain injury survivor, and are having a hard time, please reach out so we can bring back some peace of mind, 860-219-0291 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
