Information session offered for caregivers of brain injury patients

NANAIMO – Brain injury society hosts Healthy Boundaries seminar Wednesday (Feb. 24).

An acquired brain injury or stroke is a terrifying experience. The extent of the damage varies from person to person, and can result in problems with speech, memory or movement, but in all cases, the person’s life is irrevocably changed.

Being or becoming a caregiver is a huge responsibility that comes with its own successes and frustrations and all too often, caregivers put themselves at the end of their own lists.

The Nanaimo Brain Injury Society is inviting individuals caring for someone who has suffered a stroke or brain injury to attend a Healthy Boundaries seminar on Wednesday (Feb. 24), from 1:30-3 p.m. at 285 Prideaux St.

The education session is being presented by registered clinical counsellor Jacqueline Gautier.

The program is by registration only. Please contact Wendy Johnstone at 250-650-2359 or by e-mail at navigator@nbis.ca.
