Graham Anderson House in Glasgow opened new additional services in September 2015, extending its service provision for people with acquired brain injury (ABI) and complex needs.

This exciting new development, called 'Eastfields', is part of the continuum of care provided by the Brain Injury Rehabilitation Trust (BIRT).

The Eastfields development 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.

A nursing service for those with complex medical needs and behaviour that challenges (four beds), designed for people who:

  • meet criteria for NHS continuing care
  • cannot be cared for in standard nursing homes
  • have complex medical needs
  • display behaviours that challenge the service provider
  • may require reactive clinical team input

A transitional living service (four beds) which will allow the team 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.

Eight self contained flats, designed for people who display high risk behaviours, who:

  • have cognitive impairment
  • may require long term support
  • are physically high functioning
  • have difficulty managing their behaviour
  • require on-going vocational and clinical input
  • require on-going psychological and behavioural management
  • have the potential to transition into their own tenancy following this support
