Many people living with the impact of brain injury and other neurological conditions can experience significant emotional, cognitive and behavioural difficulties.
People living with cognitive challenges arising from an illness or disability may experience issues remembering tasks, learning new things, making decisions about their lives and concentrating. Behavioural challenges might include restlessness, mood swings, aggression towards loved ones or care staff.
For many people, adapting to life with a disability can cause significant feelings of anxiety and depression. However, with the support of our neuropsychologist, neurorehabilitation programs can focus not only on physical recovery but also the emotional support to come to terms with a different way of life.
Brain injury is one of the leading causes of young-onset dementia, which refers to people who develop dementia before 65. Dementia in those who have suffered a brain injury can manifest itself differently, too – for example, it may get better over time, unlike many other forms of dementia that gradually worsen. However, you will typically see poor concentration, memory loss, irritability, mood swings, insomnia, inappropriate behaviour, and apathy with brain injury.
From memory problems and disorientation to anxiety and depression, at Inspire Neurocare, our specialist interdisciplinary team is skilled in supporting people living with moderate to severe challenges.
