understand brain injury and how it will effect you or your
Head injury or brain injury can affect the
whole family, not just the person with the injury. Our service
therefore takes into account the needs of the family too.
If you are considering using a BIRT service for a
family member, we will be pleased to discuss with you any aspect of
assessment and rehabilitation. We can also visit you at home, or at
the hospital, to answer any of your queries.
If you would like to know more about BIRT's service
please feel free to contact us. If you would like to visit a BIRT
service for yourself, and talk to our staff, then you can also use
this website to find out where we are, and which service is
closest to you.
We understand that families can play a vital role
in the long-term rehabilitation of someone with a brain injury. If
you choose to use a BIRT service for your relative, you will be
welcome to visit regularly.
Our goal is to understand your or your relative's
unique needs and create a programme that will give them the best
possible chance of rehabilitation. Our programmes are designed to
be challenging, so that people are encouraged to make as much
progress as they can towards social reintegration.
