Memory loss: A campaign to remember aims to raise awareness of the ways in which memory problems can affect brain injury survivors and their families. It explores the impact of memory on relationships, recovery and returning to work.

Memory problems after a brain injury can be life changing and are very different from the usual, everyday memory frustrations many of us experience. They can make a survivor feel alone, angry and confused and can impact every aspect of their life.

A recent study by Headway – the brain injury association found that 72% of brain injury survivors feel that the people in their life don’t understand their memory problems, with 81% reporting that their life would be improved if people had a better understanding of this complex condition.
