Recommended Posts

A new study shows that carers of survivors of a brain haemorrhage are three times more likely to suffer from post traumatic stress disorder than the general population.

As a brain haemorrhage survivors, we sometimes get wrapped up in our own suffering and forget that our carers can suffer too.

What is worrying is that these significant others receive little medical attention as they often act as informal carers. Their psychological health problems could affect the levels of care they are able to give and thus reduce the patient's chances of a good recovery.
