Relationship of Family Dynamics and TBI:
In the article, Community-Based Interventions for Persons with Traumatic Brain Injury: A Primer for Rehabilitation Counselors, many persons with a traumatic brain injury permanently live with family. Due to lack of professional support and expertise, families take on the role as primary caregiver. The level of care can range from limited (e.g., wash dishes) to comprehensive support (i.e., assist with all daily routines and functioning). This changes the family dynamics and are both physically and emotionally demanding for each family member. The impact on each family member varies depending upon his or her role (Degeneffe, Boot, Kuehne, Kuraishi, Maristela, Noyes, Price, Slooten, & Will, 2008).

Great article about Omega-3 fish oils by US Army doc with loads of wounded warrior experience. W're using it for our son with some very encouraging results for memory and even fine motor control. It's inexpensive unlike some other alternatives. http://www.brainhealtheducation.org/wp-content/uploads/2014/03/omega-3s.brain_.injury-inform_article_1-2014.pdf
