NOTE: Please mute your microphones when you are not speaking since background noise from our respective homes can add up and make it difficult for everyone to hear speakers in the Zoom Room.
Welcome Newcomers – We’re glad you are here. We hope you find our group a collection of people with the intention to share our experience, strength and hope for making life a little more tolerable for those caring for a Brain Injury Survivor. Here are several Focus Questions that we will go around the room with each participant sharing their thoughts and feelings regarding. Let’s try and keep each of our answers to 3-5 minutes so everyone can weigh in. If you need more time to think when called on or would like to Pass, feel free to say so.
- Depending on the number of people we have, we may skip to the main questions that follow. If it’s a small group, lets go around and briefly update everyone on ourselves.
- What technique(s) have you used to explain your Caregiving situation and all its demands to friends and family that don’t have a clue? Where there any bad feelings as a result?
- What technique(s) have you used to encourage your Survivor when they don’t want to work on therapy or recover? What has worked and what hasnt?
