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.
Important update regarding the Family Caregiver Support Group:
The Family Caregiver Support Group, held at 5 p.m. on the third Wednesday of each month at the Community Campus, will be discontinued effective March 1. (February's group meeting will be the final one.) The group is going to be discontinued due to lack of attendance. We are going "back to the drawing board" to develop a plan for how to best support family members of brain injury survivors. We welcome your input should you have ideas to share!
