Families armed with information and practical strategies for assisting their loved one, as well as a strong support network, tend to cope better with the many consequences and challenges of acquired brain injury and the cognitive difficulties often associated with TBI. TLC is now offering families three publications upon admission:
- Life After Head Injury: Who am I?
a patient education manual developed by the Tampa General Rehabilitation Center
- Family Articles About Traumatic Brain Injury
a compilation of articles about the causes and consequences of TBI written specifically for families, published by Communication Skill Builders
- A compilation of professional journal articles regarding family issues following TBI.
Families receive this information during the orientation process from their internal Case Manager at TLC.
