Brain Injury caregivers

I would like to see a board for brain injury caregiving. This type of caregiving is different from all others. There are alot of folks out there with their spouses, children, and other family members with a brain injury and they are having to take care of them. The health care system does little for these patients because it's very expensive. A lot of patients are either sent to "maintenance" homes to rot, or sent home to family. The family is left to care for their loved one with little or no education about brain injury. I believe a support board with this subject would help alot of people.
