: The brain-injured often require care long after they leave the acute care setting. Increasingly this care is being given at home. Informal caregivers are an important link to the brain-injured patient's achieving optimal health and wellness. Characteristics of caregivers are given and the AFFIRM model used as a guide to assist nurses in their preparation of caregivers. A case study illustrates use of the model.
