Kerwin Court provides neuropsychological rehabilitation for people with acquired brain injury, and recognises the importance of including family and friends in this process. We encourage communication with any family members and friends who would like more information as we are here to support you, provide information and advise about the common affects of brain injury.
If possible, and with the agreement of the injured relative, we also encourage family members to become involved in aspects of their relative's rehabilitation programme. We can do this in a number of ways, and welcome new ideas about other ways to work together. However, we also understand that it may not always be possible to be at Kerwin Court, so it could be possible to be involved from a distance (e.g. over the telephone, or indirectly taking part by learning about brain injury).
How you can be involved
There are different ways to be involved, depending on your questions, so please do speak to your relative and their Keyworker about what would work best for you. It is important that we consult with your relative to obtain their consent to share information about their injury or rehabilitation.
