We specialise in: working with clients following discharge from hospital with an acquired brain injury. This includes brain injury caused by trauma (falls, accidents, assaults), stroke and illness.

 

We are focused on: re-ablement and working with clients to ensure they achieve for them-selves as much as they can safely do. We will work alongside them to build confidence and re-learn lost skills.

 

We work with clients who: may display inappropriate sexual behaviour and also challenging behaviour and anger management issues. We will carry out programmes provided by community health therapists, in the clients own home.

 

We help clients to: plan a budget, pay bills, maintain tenancy of their homes, to go shopping for food, prepare menus and cook food, keep themselves and their homes clean. We will also accompany clients to hospital, and dental or doctors appointments, if required.

 

We aim to: reduce care packages over a period of time. To enable clients to do more for themselves and gain confidence in their own abilities. This is not always possible for all clients as some will always need support to remain living in the community.

 

Support and care will be provided in partnership with clients, their family and carers.
