Questions Families Should Ask Their Trauma Care Medical Team

  • How severe is my loved one’s brain injury?
  • What are you doing right now? How will it help my loved one?
  • Can you tell me anything I might do that would helpful?
  • Can you take me step-by-step through the basic care tasks you are performing (e.g., bathing, grooming and feeding) so I can possibly help with them, too?
  • When will I know my loved one is ready for the next step?
  • What is cognitive therapy, and how can it help my loved one?
  • What is the goal of rehabilitation therapy?
