Concussion Caregiver Tips
Caregivers can help concussion sufferers by making sure the recovery process goes smoothly and by supporting the doctor’s treatment plan to lessen the severity of symptoms and prevent further injury.
- Make sure the sufferer is able to get plenty of rest. Provide a quiet, stress-free place to rest, and avoid situations that cause lots of noise or activity in the home during recovery.
- Parents of children who’ve had a concussion should enforce a recovery-friendly sleep schedule.
- Communicate with the doctor or healthcare provider to be sure you understand what to look for in terms of symptoms and improvement while you’re caring for the sufferer.
- Communicate with other people in the sufferer’s life–family members, work colleagues, teachers, coaches, etc.–to be sure that everyone knows the recovery plan and accommodations that need to be made to speed the sufferer’s recovery.
