Question: What is an Acquired Brain Injury?
An Acquired Brain Injury (also known as an ABI) is any form of brain injury that has happened since a person was born. Typical causes of an ABI might be a car accident, a fall, brain tumours or a stroke. It is often associated with an impact trauma but this isn't always the case. The condition is not hereditary, degenerative or congenital.
Some Of The Symptoms Of An ABI:
- Fatigue and tiredness.
- Disturbed sleep.
- Regular headaches or migraines.
- Limited movement capabilities.
- Co-ordination issues.
- Weakness in the limbs.
- Seizures and epilepsy.
- Emotional & behavioural changes.
- Anxiety and/or depression.
- Memory loss.
- Learning and information processing difficulties.
- Vision issues.
- Difficulties with everyday tasks.
Treatments for An Acquired Brain Injury:
Your doctors or consultants should have put plans in place which can be followed at home.
Typically, this will be focused on neuro-rehabilitation which covers many aspects including physical and cognitive skills, behaviour, communication, social interaction, emotional learning and support.
These treatments may span from a few weeks or months up to several years.
It's important for you to understand that you and your loved ones can arrange for ABI home care as and when you need it, for as long as you need it: From a few hours a week to around-the-clock care.
