Help a Family Caregiver During Brain Injury Awareness Month 2016

02-Mar-2016 More than 60 million people in the United States provide at-home care for family members. Family caregivers assist with personal care, provide transportation, act as medical advocates, and offer emotional support for those who cannot live independently, and they do this while managing the demands of their personal lives, their jobs, and their families.   

During Brain Injury Awareness Month do something to recognize, support, and help a family caregiver.
  • Offer some respite time to a family caregiver -- even a few hours can make a difference.
  • Help a family caregiver prepare meals for the week.
  • Send a gift certificate for some kind of personal service.
  • Help a family caregiver find educational materials and support.
BIAA offers resources for family caregivers at, and caregivers can also call the National Brain Injury Information Center at 800-444-6443 for information on brain injury resources in their states.
