When your loved one suffers catastrophic injuries in a motorcycle accident, it can be difficult to know how best to support them through recovery and adjustment to living with long-term injuries. These tips can help you be there when they need it most.
- Create a safe and welcoming home. It often takes weeks or months for your loved one to come home. When they do, make sure their room and living space is set up to accommodate their physical limitations and allow them as much independence as possible.
- Get involved in rehabilitation. Be there for encouragement during doctors’ appointments and rehabilitation sessions. Help your loved one engage in the recommended activities for home rehabilitation.
- Ask questions. Make sure you and your injured loved one are getting the answers you need to understand the rehabilitation process and what to expect.
- Take time for yourself. We all want to be there for our loved ones, but caring for someone 24/7 is too taxing for any one person. Make sure you work out a relief schedule so that you and your family members can take time away and return to your injured loved one renewed and ready to give them your best.
