Acquired Brain Injuries

Our Acquired Brain injury (ABI) services are dedicated to providing support for people with complex needs following a brain injury. We understand that no two people and no two brain injuries are the same. We offer a variety of supportive pathways, personalised to suit each person’s specific needs. We are focussed on the strengths, interests and dreams of everyone we support.

We support people who have:

  • Traumatic Brain Injuries  
  • Stroke/ aneurysms
  • Alcohol related brain injuries including Korsakoff’s syndrome
  • Brain Injuries as a result of hypoxia, encephalitis, meningitis and tumour
  • Physical and mobility needs
  • Diabetes, epilepsy and PEG care
  • Behavioural, psychological, emotional and forensic needs
  • Cognitive and executive functioning difficulties (memory, attention skills, information processing and social interaction)
  • Dual diagnosis with Mental Health or substance misuse

Our services also offer neuro-disability, to support people with conditions such as early onset dementia and Huntington’s.

Our services are able to offer:

  • Transitional (short, medium or long term) rehabilitation goal focused placements
  • Short term community skill assessment/ cognitive assessment placements
  • Specialist emotional/behavioural support placements
  • Slow stream rehabilitation
  • Supported living tenancies
  • Specialist outreach support in your home
  • Vocational support
  • Respite placements

We also offer personalised programs of activities, established to enable people to relearn previous skills and gain new skills where possible. 

Positive Steps

Everyone within our services has access to our Positive Steps workshops. The workshops take place within a safe environment, under the guidance and support of our clinical team. Positive Steps enables people to develop their own cognitive and social skills. There is a focus on decision-making, attention and memory skills and social functioning. Each person is encouraged whilst having fun and engaging with others.
