Acquired Brain Injury Care
A fall, a stroke or a traffic accident can result in a brain injury – we’re here to assist you and your family
Acquired brain injuries are different from genetic or congenital brain injuries.
This category includes:
Traumatic brain injuries
The treatments and recommended guidelines of care around acquired brain injury vary greatly. It depends on each individual situation and we understand you may need unique care and assistance. Guardian Angel Carers can work in tandem with your team of medical professionals in charge of the patient’s care.
The care you need for as long as you need it
Some cases of acquired brain injury, for example concussions, are minor. Medical professionals approach them differently than serious situations that can emerge from a diagnosis of meningitis or brain cancer.
In all cases of acquired brain injury, however, people can potentially experience difficulties. These can continue for months or even years after the injury to the brain and head.
It can be difficult to determine the scope of a person’s brain injury right away. This is because of the complex nature of the brain. Usually, the more serious the problem, the more likely the person will need long-term care.
No matter the need, whether for short or long term assistance, Guardian Angel Carers can help.
Feel good about help at home
Acquired brain injury can result in many challenges. They affect both the person with the injury and loved ones who spend time caring for the person. Possible challenges include:
- Brain injury can affect personality and temperament.
- Changes in behaviour and communication problems can sometimes feel alarming and confusing for everyone involved.
- Difficulty with executive functioning means that previously simple tasks are suddenly strenuous.
- Injuries can compromise problem-solving skills and the ability to think flexibly and decisively.
- A previously self-aware person may behave in unexpected ways, displaying lack of emotional control or disregard for social boundaries.
- If you sustain a brain injury during a potentially traumatising incident, like an accident, one may notice ensuing mental health issues. Experts can link certain issues to the physical and cognitive changes as a result of the brain injury.

Get customised solutions at home
At the outset of someone having a brain injury, you may not know what your family’s biggest challenge will be.
For some, it’s needing to rely on others more for help. But what if there’s no one available to assist? Alternatively, adjusting to cognitive and emotional changes in the person can be demanding. For the patient, something like hormonal imbalances, can be a long, frustrating process.
