The 70-page TBI PRIMER (PDF document) provides information on topics to assist you, the CAREGIVER or MENTOR, in working effectively with someone who has a TBI. Be sure you and your mentee or relative discuss how to best meet their needs with the Warrior’s medical care team. Some Warriors may want a more concentrated effort with frequent visits or phone calls while others will only want an abbreviated plan. Have the Warrior discuss their treatment plan with their medical treatment team and maintain contact with their Medical/Health Care staff.
It is very important to let the Medical Staff do the medical/health care work and not you as either a CAREGIVER or MENTOR.
