Families of brain injury survivors face a great deal of stress in many areas of life.  Often significant among these new stressors encountered in the post-injury landscape is the sudden need to manage a loved one’s personal life. In many cases a brain injury survivor will no longer be capable of managing his or her own finances or of making important medical decisions unassisted.  Columnist Dear Abby and the United States government have teamed together to offer a free Family Caregiver Kit.  This kit contains nine publications addressing a wide range of important issues such as effectively managing finances, the implications of power of attorney and enacting proper medicine safety strategy.  The kit can be ordered for free (or alternatively, the publications can be downloaded for free) via this link:
