The Brain Injury Rehabilitation Trust (BIRT) is delighted to announce that their new development: Eastfields, at the Graham Anderson House service, Glasgow, will have a ribbon cutting ceremony, with guest of honour, Bailie Allan Stewart, on the 2nd of September 2015.

Eastfields includes four brand new four-bed single storey properties; Bluebell, Thistle, Hawthorn and Heather. As a response to demand from Health Boards across Scotland we have designed these bespoke services and accommodation for individuals who require specialist rehabilitation and support.

One of the bungalows will be a transitional living service (four beds) which will allow the team at Graham Anderson House to support service users to increase independence prior to discharge. This offers an opportunity to ensure that people are able to manage independently or to determine what support is required when they return home.

We are able to offer more support for people with a brain injury who have had difficulty in finding a suitable placement elsewhere. The new development enables us to accommodate more services users requiring an on going therapeutic programme of meaningful rehabilitation.” Sandra Wylie, Service Manager.
