As a spouse of a service member who has suffered a traumatic brain injury, or TBI, you may be experiencing a range of emotions. It is important to allow yourself to feel every emotion that surfaces and attend to your own needs.
When your spouse or loved one suffers a severe injury or debilitating illness, you may experience a range of emotions, including grief and anger. It is important to take care of yourself as much as possible while caring for your loved one. While Military OneSource does not provide health care services, it does offer information about the services and benefits available and provides resources for caregivers to assist them in their role.
Special needs consultants through Military OneSource can answer your questions and concerns about the care and education of your child or adult family member with special needs.
Supporting adult family members with complex needs may involve collaboration with a variety of support systems and community-based services.
When your family member has special needs, you have an extra roster of “must-dos” to be a good guardian of your family. Think about enrolling in the EFMP as one of them.
