Brain Injury Rehabilitation
We work with individuals following acquired brain injury, traumatic brain injury, cerebral palsy, stroke and other neurological conditions.
How can you benefit from this service?
We work with adults to regain their independence following a brain injury. The children we work with require treatment to develop key independence skills following both acquired and traumatic brain injury.
Cognitive rehabilitation focuses on encouraging the brain to learn to use skills such as memory, concentration and attention. This often includes the use of both a restorative and compensatory approach such as memory strategies.
Experiencing fatigue is a common symptom following a brain injury. Our therapists work with their clients to develop routines and strategies throughout the day and night, incorporating rest periods that allow the individual to continue to do the things that are important to them.
We understand that experiencing a brain injury can significantly affect an individuals confidence as they come to terms with the new challenges they face. Our treatment focuses on building confidence and self-esteem.
Occupational therapists are uniquely placed to advise and support employers to adapt a job role to meet the needs of their employee following illness or injury. If an individual cannot return to their previous job role we can recommend suitable alternative employment. We have vocational rehabilitation specialist occupational therapists within our team allowing us to offer work place assessments.
The core value of occupational therapy practice emphasises the need for individuals to have access to activities which give their life meaning and purpose. Our service helps adults and children to identify these activities and access them despite their brain injury. We are experts at adapting activities and environments to suit each individual’s needs.
