Welcome to Headway Essex’s carer support and advice page. We’re here to make sure that nobody has to face living with brain injury alone.
In reaching this page, it’s likely you are caring for a partner, parent, son, daughter or friend with an acquired brain injury.
You might need help in dealing with a range of emotions you find yourself experiencing, or just want to understand more about brain injury, its effects and the specialist support available both to your loved one and you as a carer.
Or perhaps you just want to talk to someone who understands exactly what you are going through.
How can Headway Essex help?
We are here to listen, help and support you, at any stage from the hospital bedside to many years down the line.
Through our help line, our community support team can provide you with direct, emotional and practical support.
There is no fee for using our help line, which is available for you to call between 8.30am – 4.30pm Monday to Friday (except for public holidays).
