From Partner to Care Provider 

May 9th 2016

Caring for a spouse or partner with a traumatic brain injury (TBI) or other chronic condition presents special challenges that are different from caring for a parent, child, or friend.

Tragedy due to illness or accident changes your relationship with your spouse or partner.

What was once a partnership can now be one of dependency. You may go from partner to care provider.


What about normal concerns of the partnership?

  • Raising children
  • Making mutual decisions
  • The family income (loss)
  • Travel
  • Intimacy


How to handle each of these issues and more must be though out carefully as the "well spouse" and his /her partner has to contemplate not only the immediacy of the situation but how will their future look, both as a family as well as an individual.


In the next couple of caregiver tips, we'll discuss these issues in some detail.
