Impact of ABI

Brain injury is for life and individuals with ABI and their families can face a dramatically altered life as a result. Damage to the brain may result in a personality change and can affect one or more of
the following:

  • Memory
  • Speech& language
  • Mobility
  • Sight
  • Understanding of situations
  • Judgement
  • Ability to cope with pressure
  • Concentration
  • The ability to organise oneself and their finances

All these affect a person’s ability to take control of their lives and can lead to social isolation and
depression. Financial and emotional strain on carers and family members can be considerable.
