family caregiver support
Family caregivers are the invisible forces whose support is essential in ensuring the highest quality of life and independence for their loved one living with a brain injury. That takes a lot of work, worry and sacrifice. At Krempels Center, we recognize the ripple effect of brain injury and seek to alleviate the stressors that accompany the caregiver role. One of the most important ways we support family caregivers is by providing a safe and caring environment where your family member has the opportunity to form friendships and get support as well as build skills and pursue their interests. In addition, compassionate and knowledgeable staff are available to provide support and resource information to family members in need.
Krempels Center Monthly Family Caregiver Support Group
This group offers the opportunity for family caregivers of brain injury survivors to come together with the purpose of helping reduce the stress and sense of isolation that many family caregivers experience. The group includes brain injury-related information, shared stories, and helpful strategies. Facilitated by a brain injury professional, this group seeks to provide a safe space for caregivers to receive peer support while also helping to improve caregivers’ understanding of how they can best meet the needs of their loved ones.
