Research Looks to Help Caregivers for Veterans with Traumatic Brain Injury
NOVEMBER 03, 2016
When veterans come home after experiencing traumatic brain injuries, it can be difficult for them to adjust to their lives. It can also present a variety of challenges for their loved ones who take on the task of helping them in their daily lives.
Lisa Garand, PhD, MS, GCNS-BC, from Duquesne University in Pittsburgh, PA, discussed the progress her research has made during an interview with MD Magazine. Garand had previously worked with the caregivers of patients with Alzheimer's disease and dementia, but now she has turned her attention to helping the families of veterans during what can be a very difficult situation.
