Rehabilitation for people with an Acquired Brain Injury

Acquired brain injuries or traumatic brain injuries are extremely complex, affecting both the mental and physical abilities of the individual. No two people with brain injuries are the same, so our support and rehabilitation is centred around the needs of the individual. We support the person’s remaining functional ability to enhance the skills that they have and help them to re-learn the skills that have been severely affected by the brain injury. We focus on what they can do, not on what they can’t.

MDT-supported rehabilitation

Our experience supports research studies that have shown that rehabilitation is most effective when involving a co-ordinated multi-disciplinary team (MDT) of professionals from a range of different fields. Our MDT meets on a monthly basis to review the care plans of the service users in our care. The team comprises:

  • Consultant Neuropsychiatrist – assesses how the individual is affected by their medication and treatment
  • Consultant Clinical Psychologist – develops a programme of treatment and goals, with regular assessments, helps the individual to deal with the psychological aspects of their condition, such as grief, loss and their mental health
  • Three Assistant Psychologists – support the work of the Consultant Clinical Psychologist, working directly with service users 
  • Neurological Physiotherapist – specialist physiotherapy helps to improve mobility and strength
  • Consultant Speech & Language Therapist – helps to improve communication and conditions such as dysphasia
  • Neurological Occupational Therapist – ensures the service user’s environment is safe and helps them to function more effectively within it
  • Home Managers – experienced in the provision of specialist residential care and the welfare of service users, they provide valuable input into service users’ care plans

You can meet all of the members of our MDT and management team here 


Daily rehabilitation support

Members of the MDT take an active role in delivering a combination of one-to-one therapeutic input and group work, depending on the needs of the individual. They are assisted by the care staff who provide rehabilitation support on a daily basis. For example, an acquired brain injury can cause severe memory loss, so service users need to be orientated daily and throughout the day to enable them to continue with their activities. Our support staff understand that direction needs to be brief, clear, concise and consistent. 

In addition, all of our staff are trained in techniques to manage actual or potential aggression (MAPA) so that we can avoid physical restraint, treating our service users with dignity and respect at all times. And most of all, we aim to employ care staff who are genuinely caring and compassionate people.


Individualised care packages

We provide both short-term intensive rehabilitation and long-term slow-stream rehabilitation for adults with acquired or traumatic brain injury. We deliver positive outcomes for service users with a wide range of complex needs and behaviour that challenges: these outcomes are measured in terms of functional ability, behavioural considerations and end-placement.

More information on outcomes is available here
