We recognise the importance of the dynamic relationship that exists between people and their environment. Our process for ABI rehabilitation is to approach each individual’s behaviour uniquely; understanding that a person is more than a sum of their parts. Our relationship with our clients is one that is based on respect, relative openness, equality and mutuality. We deliver a holistic-systematic approach to care that starts with our assessment of key psycho-social factors.
Once we have established this baseline, we look at the possible courses of action that are available, and identify any constraints and priority areas. Each of our client’s are partnered with their own keyworker who delivers measured care interventions; which are not wholly compensatory (unless such an approach can be justified). The care plans are continuously evaluated and adjusted to ensure that they are effective; in line with client preferences, and are accommodating any priority changes. This system is monitored by the Quality and Rehabilitation Systems Manager to help promote and maintain consistency. Our client’s also have access to the following professional services to support them:
- Speech and Language Therapists
- Occupational Therapists
Following a brain injury, accepting the changes and losses that have resulted from the injury is a long and complicated process. Our holistic approach helps our team to understand at a deeper level, the effects of our clients injuries; allowing us to deliver more effective care interventions. For many, their brain injury becomes a punctuation mark, in their personal story, marking a before and after. When there is a greater disparity between these two identities, it can result in emotional suffering. Our team adjust their level of care dynamically to support a client so that they can emotionally adjust and maximise their level of independence. These supports and their intersections are central for identity reconstruction.
