Hi all, my friend suffered a traumatic brain injury Aug 2012 and is in a rehab unit. She is subject to a Deprivation of Liberty order and has poor short term memory, no recollection of pretty much the last 15 years of her life and high levels of anxiety. My friend feels imprisoned where she is (and that's accurate as she does not have the power to leave), wants to leave the unit and get back to work. Apart from the head injury my friend is physically mobile. I don't want to lie or collude with my friend and I believe she is making good progress with the rehab and is in the right place at the moment, but when she says she wants to leave and get back to (her highly skilled and responsible) work I wonder how honest I should be? Does anyone have any experience of this either as the survivor or the friend / family / carer that they feel they could share with me?
