Brain injury and stroke rehabilitation
Brain injuries and strokes can affect any person, at any stage of their life and can result in a broad range of complex physical, sensory, cognitive, psychological, emotional, behavioural and social difficulties.
At Exemplar Health Care we support individuals with acquired (ABI) and traumatic (TBI) brain injury including those who require tracheostomy management and ventilated care.
People living with the life-changing effect of these injuries are supported by Exemplar Health Care’s specialist teams who work with a person to increase their functional abilities, including movement, speech and emotional needs. Where possible, our specialist teams use assistive technology, including communication aids and environmental controls, to increase a person’s independence.
What can cause a brain injury?
Brain injuries can be caused by disease, by metabolic/physical changes in the body or can be caused by trauma. Whatever the cause nurses and employees at Exemplar treat each person as a unique individual.
