Our model of care

Our model is based on a neurorehabilitation approach and focuses on enabling people to function more independently and develop their lives as they choose. The multidisciplinary team has specialist assessment and therapy rooms to aid individuals in recovery.

Our person-centred programme may include:

  • Multidisciplinary assessment of needs
  • Educational and therapeutic sessions
  • Support for personal, social, and domestic skills
  • Behavioural guidance
  • Community based activities
  • Supported leisure activities

The people we support are actively involved in reviewing their progress against agreed outcomes, and we promote the involvement of families in the rehabilitation process. Home leave is encouraged wherever possible.

Becoming more independent

Access to the wider community forms an important part of rehabilitation, our rehabilitation centre is based at the heart of our local community making social integration possible. Whether discharged within six months or a year, our aim is to support everyone to be as independent as possible. That’s why care is tailored to individual circumstances and never rushed.

As well as providing a comfortable place to live and socialise with the other residents, there is plenty of entertaining space for when friends and family come to visit.
