When your loved one has been seriously injured in a motorcycle accident, it takes a toll on your entire family. You can be left feeling helpless during their recovery, but there are things you can do to help. Remember these tips for care:
- Welcome them home. When they finally come home from the hospital, make sure their room is clean and functional for their limitations. You want them to feel safe and comfortable as they recover.
- Stay involved during rehabilitation. Go to the doctor with your loved one. Ask questions about their progress. Make sure your loved one is getting the answers they need from doctors and therapists about their recovery.
- Write things down. Memory loss often accompanies head injuries. If your loved one suffers from memory loss, use post-it notes, lists, or journals to help them remember everyday items without the need for constantly reminding them.
- Share the responsibility. Taking care of a severely injured loved one is emotionally and physically taxing. Make sure that you take shifts with other family members and take time for yourself.
