Focus: Caregiver Support

WA State Caregiver Support Group

Description

The following session will focus on best practices for supporting a loved one’s behaviors, both in and out of the home. A person’s behavior and personality may change because of an illness or disability or the stress and changes that come with those situations. Pain, anxiety, and fear of dependency may lead to difficult behavior. For someone caring for an adult who displays these behaviors, there are specific actions you can take to resolve situations, reduce behaviors, and support your own well-being. Through discussion and practice, the group will explore strategies to mitigate behaviors for the benefit of the caregiver and those that are under their care.

Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) Support

Washington State Support Groups

 

Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI)

 

The Washington State Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) Strategic Partnership Advisory Council provides Support Groups through the Department of Social and Health Services (DSHS) that emphasize connection, education, and engagement in life after sustaining a TBI.

 

Our Support Groups are predicated on the concept of a person-centered approach that can aid in the development of long-term knowledge and generic problem-solving skills to help attendees overcome barriers to sustaining a fulfilling life.

 

These Support Groups may provide a therapeutic effect, but they do not provide therapy and instead focus on delivering organized bodies of knowledge and resources for the betterment of attendees.

 

*Please note, groups with "private" in the title are specifically for groups hosted in facilities and are not open for public entry.
