Our programmes are led by our Consultant Clinical Psychologist and supported by our multi-disciplinary team.
While we are first and foremost a brain injury rehabilitation centre, for either acquired or traumatic brain injury, we also have continuing care beds for clients with complex care needs related to their brain injury.
Through a range of therapies, supported by our Rehabilitation Nurses and Consultant, we cater for rehabilitation of:
Acquired or Traumatic Brain Injury
Prolonged Disorders of Consciousness (PDOC)
Mild Challenging Behaviour
Spinal Injury with Head Injury
Our Rehabilitation Team Includes:
Rehabilitation Nurses who assist and care for each client, providing medication and oversight of general health. The named nurse will work with the client to promote regaining medical stability, nutritional information, ability to self-medicate, promote continence and more.
Our Consultant in Rehabilitation visits the unit regularly to assess individuals and their progress and is supported by our General Practitioner, a specialist from a local surgery, who visits fortnightly to assess individuals, review medications and attend the MDT (Multidisciplinary meeting). GP visits can be arranged any time a client is unwell.
Music therapy is valuable in a number of ways, from facilitation of movement and physical rehabilitation to providing motivation and emotional support.
Music can help to bring improvements in mood, communication and overall wellbeing. Our team use music therapy to create varied sessions to the benefit of each individual, and to provide an outlet for self expression and interaction.
Animals can have an incredible impact on wellbeing for individuals, and we enjoy regular visits from a range of Therapy Animals.
Therapy animals offer affection, enjoyment, entertainment and alternative opportunities example, the physical activity of petting or brushing a pet not only brings an emotional connection and boosts self confidence, but uses motor skills in a different way.
Importantly, Pet Therapy can break up a routine that might otherwise be focused on structured rehabilitation.
