Caregiver Distress

by Barbara Stahura

Family caregivers of people with brain injury face stress, often intense, that can last for months and years. A new study suggests that the both emotional dysfunction and emotional health of a stressed caregiver can affect the recovery and rehabilitation of the injured person. Fortunately, there are many easy and inexpensive ways to relieve the stress associated with caregiving — including journaling, of course! — so that everyone can feel better. See more in this week’s post in Journal After Brain Injury, as well as prompts to help you deal with the stress.
