    Hi all

    This is such a tough time to be in this situation. Visits stopped, therapies on hold. It makes a dreadful situation so much worse. Sending the biggest and gentlest of hugs and the hope that things will be better, or as better as they can be, soon.

    Hi Julie

    I’m sorry to hear you are struggling, though to be honest I think anyone who finds themselves in this situation struggles so you’re not alone in that. It demands an enormous amount of resilience and an acceptance that nothing to do with severe brain injury ever happens fast! The current situation makes it much, much worse of course, and any decisions and plans will be put on hold for a while. With that in mind, I’m not sure how social distancing would affect physio etc. Are you allowed to visit Amber or is that a no no?

    Looking further ahead, it may well be that she would be allowed to go home with an appropriate care package in place. I believe that will depend on whether her care is funded by continuing care or social care.

    Please continue to take care of yourself and remember you can always call our help line if you want to chat.

    Best wishes in these uncertain times

    Hello Nora. I’m so sorry to hear about your daughter. I’m sure it must seem like a lifetime to you, but in terms of severe brain Injury it’s very early days and at this stage I think it’s almost impossible to say how much recovery can be made.

    This is a very long, roller coaster of a journey and the toll it takes on families is immense. Just as you help to take care of your daughter, you need to take care of yourselves too, and make sure you eat properly and sleep. I think we may have spoken on the phone previously, but please do ring if you need to talk some more. It really does help to share when you’re going through such a difficult time.

    Take care for now.

    Judy
