Brain Aware Training Programme

For Family Members caring for and supporting someone with an Acquired Brain Injury


Venue: Abbey Hotel, Roscommon

Dates: 13th, 20th and 27th March and 3rd April 17th April and 24th April 2012

9.30am to 1pm


Come along to the first training session on Tuesday 13th March from 9.30am to 1pm.


Acquired Brain Injury Ireland staff, along with external trainers who are specialists in their field, will facilitate the 6 sessions


The aim of the programme is to develop Family Carers’ skills and knowledge of Acquired Brain Injury and enable them to respond more appropriately to their family member’s needs. 

The programme modules will help carers to better understand ABI and the effects of brain injury on a person’s emotions, behaviour, communication, attention and memory. 

Attendees will also learn how to cope with the emotional and psychological aspects of the role of ‘carer’ and how ABI can affect the family environment. There is no charge for this Training Programme but numbers are restricted and booking is recommended.  For more information please log onto our website at

I would like to thank The

I would like to thank The Wheel for executing the training session regarding Acquired Brain Injury. We have learned so much from the training. The topics are easy to understand and the importance of having Family Carers were pointed out very well. I will be keeping a look out on further seminars and training sessions to attend to in the future. Thank you The Wheel for a job well done.
