Brain Injury Care from Home Care Professionals Relieve Families in Encino

????????????????????????????????????????Coping with the aftermath of a traumatic brain injury (TBI) is devastating for the victim, and families of TBI victims are often unprepared for what’s to come.  The outcome of head injury is unpredictable, as it depends on variables such as areas of the damage, length of coma, rehabilitation services, family support, age of the victim at the time of occurrence, and emergency medical services.  According to the Brain Injury Association (BIA), family caregivers experience distress, anxiety, anger, burden, and depression while caring for their loved ones.  To take away this burden from families of brain injury victims, A-1 Home Care provides professional home care services for residents of Encino and neighboring communities.

Here for the Long Haul

We understand that recovery from brain injury is indeterminate.  Most families hope for a fast recovery, but the future is uncertain.  In the meantime, you can expect to receive professional home care assistance in Encino from A-1 Home Care pre-screened caregivers to ameliorate some of your stress and meet the needs of your loved one.  Whether you need us on a short-term basis (like two weeks or a month) or a long-term basis (a year or longer), we will stand by your side and do everything we can to lighten things up for you.

Life after Brain Injury

At any given moment during recovery, TBI patients will experience some cognitive disorientation, trouble with memory recall and concentration, and trouble with making sense of the world around them.  Behavioral issues may result immediately after or long after the incident.  A-1 Home Care’s trained caregivers can share information about their personal experiences with caring for other head injury victims so that families can get a general idea of what to expect for their own loved ones.  Researching and preparing for life after head trauma, such as reintegrating into the school or work environment, will enhance the quality of life both for the trauma victim and the entire family.
