For Caregivers: 11 coping tips as you help your BI loved one

 

1. Live for the day; one day at a time. Be like the marathon runner focused on just the one mile at hand.

2. It’s best to forgive, though most of us feel the impulse only waveringly if at all. Like most things, forgiving gets easier with practice

3. Count one’s blessings daily. When not enough good things are happening, make them happen!

4. Surround yourself with positive people.The idea is to find people who’ll help you stay brave and strong so you can be there for the ones really counting on you.

5. Think outside the box! Many medical practitioners at the zenith of their careers no longer have an open mind, if they ever did. It’s your responsibility to seek alternative therapies, emerging technologies, and to keep abreast of which ones may hold real promise.

Please visit www.secondstepinc.com to find out more about the results oriented, clinically proven Gait Harness System® (GHS) and NEW Gait Harness System® II (GHSII). Many severely injured individuals who are using the GHS, and who were unable to walk in the 5, 10 and 20 plus years post their injuries, are now beginning to stand and walk again for the first time. The GHS helps individuals regain healthy functioning after challenges due to spinal cord injury, traumatic brain injury, stroke, cerebellar degeneration, orthopedic, neurological, lower extremity amputation, Parkinson’s, Alzheimer’s, and other ambulation, gait and balance rehabilitation issues. The GHS is used world-wide in a broad spectrum of out-patient, in-patient, and home enriched environments.
