Brain Injury Survivor Tips

After brain injury, life is full of adjustments. It can be challenging, not just for the survivor, but also for those who know and care for the person.  Here are a few simple  tips to help ease some of those challenges and move forward with brain injury recovery:

  • Reach out to get the help you need
  • Start with small goals
  • Schedule mentally and/or physically challenging tasks during peak periods of energy
  • Stick to a regular sleep schedule
  • Give yourself plenty of time to do things
  • Plan small breaks between tasks
  • Develop a list of tasks you need to accomplish and rank them in order of importance
  • Keep a planner and schedule your tasks

Routine and structure are important to brain injury survivors and their families and require discipline and commitment from everybody.
