Some people make a good recovery from a brain injury with few or no lasting effects. For others, changes may be longer lasting and can impact the way they feel, think and act after a brain injury.
The information in this section covers three main stages that can happen on a journey of recovery from a moderate to severe injury.
1) Returning home and initial adjustment
2) Living with changes to your thinking skills and emotions
3) Moving on with life
For any of the changes described, there is support and professional help available. For further information and advice, speak to any professionals supporting your recovery, contact Headway.
