Symptoms of TBI
When a traumatic brain injury occurs, symptoms are not as immediately apparent as with a broken bone or physical injury. Harder to understand are the changes in behavior or personality that a person with a moderate to severe traumatic brain injury often experiences. It takes a skilled, trained caregiver to know how to appropriately respond to these changes in a client with TBI.
Take a look at some behavioral symptoms of traumatic brain injury:
- Uncooperative behavior
- Denial of illness
- Broken relationships
- Memory disorders
These symptoms can be difficult to adjust to for a family member who feels as though they have lost their loved one. Instead of having to juggle the different responsibilities of caregiver, healthcare manager, family member, and sometimes more, you can just focus on caring for your loved one and maintaining a healthy relationship when you turn to Qualicare.
