What does it do?

Graham Anderson House specialises in the rehabilitation of people who are experiencing behavioural disorders following a brain injury. Individuals may also have severe cognitive, physical and / or emotional problems including verbal and physical aggression, impaired social functioning, disinhibited behaviours and neuropsychiatric symptoms.

Rehabilitation is based on a neurobehavioural approach and focuses on enabling service users to function more independently as well as participate in as many of their previous roles and activities as possible, while developing their lives with privacy, dignity and respect.

Facilities and environment

Opened in 2009, Graham Anderson House is a state-of-the-art, purpose-built facility that offers an outstanding setting for rehabilitation. Set in attractive landscaped grounds, accommodation comprises 24 single bedrooms and one transitional living flat. All service users have their own comfortable en-suite rooms, each with courtyard or garden views, complemented by spacious and well-appointed communal areas for dining and relaxation.

Rehabilitation takes place in a light, airy and superbly equipped environment, with service users enjoying access to a wide range of therapeutic and recreational facilities including an internet café. There is a varied programme of activities to support service users practise daily living skills, such as gardening and cooking, as well as a busy calendar of social activities including family barbeques, and garden parties.

Access to the wider community forms an important part of rehabilitation. Located just two miles from Glasgow's vibrant and cosmopolitan city centre, with its wealth of cultural and leisure activities, Graham Anderson House is ideally placed for social integration.
