Acquired Brain Injury

We understand that life after a brain injury or the diagnosis of a long term neurological condition can feel challenging, worrying and confusing. Our highly skilled team work towards improving the quality of life of our clients to support everyone to reach their full potential. Our fundamental focus is high quality care, supporting wellbeing, growth and development. We make this vision a reality by employing the best people and by adopting a team approach to the provision of our services.

Some of the areas that we can provide support with include:

  • Providing trained support staff – skilled in rehabilitation
  • Relearning executive skills such as budgeting, managing appointments and correspondence.
  • Behaviour management such as emotional needs and anger management
  • Activities of personal care and daily living
  • Helping clients to increase their socialisation and build meaningful relationships

Carebridge works with clients together with their families and friends to support and enable them to reach their full potential. Prior to joining Carebridge all support workers must have at least 6 months experience working with people with a brain injury or long-term neurological condition. Support workers are encouraged to access an extensive training programme to continue to improve their skills and knowledge. We believe that our service is only as good as the quality of the team employed to support our clients; therefore, all support workers receive regular support calls from the office team at the beginning of a new package of care, 3 monthly supervisions as well as annual appraisals.

Ensuring that our service is flexible, personalised and dynamic is very important to us. Each referrer and client/family has a dedicated office team member available to them as well as a 24-hour emergency on-call service. Each client has regular reviews, at least every 3 months which incorporate experience and satisfaction of the service. This enables us to ensure we are meeting the goals and aspirations of our clients and their support team.

The Carebridge Brain Injury Service has extensive expertise in working with local authorities, NHS, case managers and insurance companies, creating personalised packages to meet the unique needs of the individuals we support.
