Helping ageing carers

It’s no secret that the care needs of those living with a brain injury falls informally to their children, spouse or siblings.

Our team are here to assist anyone impacted by brain injury, including carers and family. We can help you access the most current resources, information, and tools you need to support your loved one and yourself. Synapse’s information consultants can also help you find what carer supports groups are available. These groups provide invaluable discussion on how to care for someone as both them and you age. If you’re a long-term carer taking time out for each day is vital for wellbeing and these groups can be a good way to help do that.
