The needs of people and caregivers following a brain injury extend beyond the walls of the hospital. The transition home is a challenging time as a new normal is discovered and accepted, and can be particularly difficult for those with severe cognitive impairments or aphasia. This presentation will discuss the need for holistic and tailored education for those transitioning home, and include practical clinical strategies to provide to patients and caregivers, helping them to support ongoing success.
