Brain injury and stroke
Our care homes provide specialist nursing care and rehabilitation for people living with acquired or traumatic brain injuries, including stroke.
Brain injuries and strokes can affect anyone at any stage of their life. We support people on their journey from being in hospital to community-based living, as well as offering longer term support for people living with degenerative or life-limiting conditions as a result of a brain injury or stroke.
Specialist care in a community-based home
Our community-based homes and OneCare services provide person-centred care that focuses on maximising independence, building everyday living skills and empowering people to live as fulfilled lives as possible.
We have over 30 care homes across Yorkshire, the Midlands, North East and North West that provide a welcoming and supportive environment where people can feel at home, continue to do the things that they enjoy, and remain closer to family, friends and loved ones.
A personalised approach to care
Our approach is personalised to the individuals that we support – we work with them, their loved ones and professionals to design a care plan that’s tailored to their needs and goals, whether that’s full rehabilitation or re-building everyday living skills following a brain injury or stroke.
Holistic care in a community-based home
Each of our homes have a skilled in-house team of Nurses, Support Workers and Life Skills/Activities Coordinators, as well as access to in-house Physiotherapists, Occupational Therapists, Consultant Psychiatrist and Mental Health and Behaviour Support Specialists, which enables people to access holistic care in a community-based home that’s closer to their friends and family.
- Life skills – our Life Skills Teams support people to rebuild their everyday living skills such as cleaning, washing, money management and cooking, and take part in meaningful activities to improve their wellbeing.
- Physiotherapy – our Physiotherapists support people to regain their movement following a brain injury or stroke.
- Occupational therapy – our Occupational Therapists help people to overcome the effects of their brain injury or stroke, by considering their physical, psychological, social and environmental needs.
- Behaviour support – our dedicated Behaviour Support Team work with individuals and care teams to understand the reasons for people’s behaviour, and implement strategies to reduce the frequency and duration of incidents of challenging behaviour.
- Psychiatry – our Consultant Psychiatrist, Dr Marshall, supports people to manage their treatment and provide a range of therapies for people living with complex needs.
High dependency nursing
People living with a brain injury may also have other conditions or illnesses, such as epilepsy or diabetes, or require high dependency nursing care, such as a tracheostomy and ventilated care, or feeding regimes including PEG and Dysphagia.
All of our homes are led by Registered Nurses, and supported by an in-house team of Nurses and Support Workers, so that people can access the care they need, from the comfort of the home.
