Since the early 2000s, over 439,609 service members have been diagnosed with traumatic brain injury (TBI). Most traumatic brain injuries sustained by members of the U.S. Armed Forces are classified as mild TBI, also known as concussion. While many concussions resolve within a few weeks, there can be challenges related to recovery. In addition, there may be factors that affect the quality of life for survivors of moderate or severe TBI. Families and friends play a critical role in supporting the health and well-being of individuals with TBI. It is important to recognize the emotional, physical, and financial toll that can be associated with caregiving. This webinar will provide education and insight into TBI caregiver resources, common concerns, self-care strategies, current research, and identify best practices to improve caregiver quality of life.
