Frequently asked questions

An acquired brain injury relates to injury to the brain that occurs after birth and is not related to either a congenital or degenerative disease. The impairment may be temporary or permanent and cause physical functional disability or psychosocial maladjustment.

An acquired brain injury may be caused by trauma or injury to the head (sometimes called a traumatic brain injury), a stroke, drugs, alcohol, poisons or when not enough oxygen gets to the brain for an extended time (for example, a near-drowning, infections such as meningitis, tumours). Similar symptoms can be caused by degenerative brain conditions such as Parkinson’s disease, Alzheimer’s disease or some other form of dementia.

As each acquired brain injury is different, every person’s symptoms will be different, however common symptoms can include:

Weakness, shaking, stiffness or poor balance
Changes in sleep patterns
Changes in vision, smell or touch

Some people experience changes in their thinking or learning abilities, including:

Problems with memory
Problems with concentration or attention
Difficulty with planning or organisation
Difficulty with communication, such as maintaining a conversation

Some people have problems with regulating their behaviour or emotions, including:

Mood swings
Being irritable or feeling on edge
Changes in personality

All our care workers complete the nationally recognised care certificate. Specific client needs-led training is taught by our training partner Training Now, clinical colleagues and healthcare professionals.

Most people with a brain injury are expected to experience a normal life span but families and carers can play a crucial role by monitoring for any further medical problems arising post-injury, particularly after hospital.
