Who is it for?
The Brain Injury Rehabilitation Trust (BIRT)'s continuing rehabilitation centres are for people with an acquired brain injury (ABI) who have already undergone intensive rehabilitation, need specialist care and support in a residential setting and / or have longer term support needs to maintain their rehabilitation goals and independent living skills in accordance with our general admission criteria.
What do we offer?
Our continuing rehabilitation services focus on maximising independence. They provide the same high standards as other BIRT services and use the neurobehavioural approach. The level of clinical input is lower than that provided in our intensive rehabilitation services, and this is reflected in the fees.
All service users have an individually tailored treatment programme and are involved in setting their personal goals. The programme includes educational and therapeutic sessions, personal, social and domestic skills, guided leisure time, behavioural management, community access and vocational training and support. Service users are actively involved in reviewing their progress against agreed outcomes.
The length of a residential placement varies depending on an individual's needs. Many of our service users move on to live in a more independent, less supported environment in the community. Continuing rehabilitation can be delivered in our main centres or in smaller community houses located nearby.
Clinical input can include psychology, physiotherapy, occupational therapy, speech and language therapy. Ongoing care and support is provided by a team of rehabilitation support workers with specialist brain injury training.
