Welcome to Thomas Edward Mitton House

Located in Milton Keynes, Thomas Edward Mitton (TEM) House is a specialist residential centre that provides continuing rehabilitation and specialist care and support for people with an acquired brain injury (ABI). It forms part of the nationwide network of rehabilitation support services provided by the Brain Injury Rehabilitation Trust (BIRT).

Thomas Edward Mitton House works with people who have to cope with a range of cognitive, physical and / or emotional symptoms following a severe brain injury. Rehabilitation is based on a neurobehavioural approach and focuses on enabling service users to function more independently and to participate in as many of their previous roles and activities as possible, while developing their lives with privacy, dignity and respect.

What does it do?

TEM House provides a high quality neurobehavioural assessment and rehabilitation service for people with cognitive, physical and / or emotional symptoms following an acquired brain injury including physical and / or verbal aggression, impaired social functioning and dis-inhibited behaviour.

It also provides a continuing rehabilitation service for those with longer term needs. Specialist rehabilitation is based on a neurobehavioural approach and focuses on enabling service users to function as independently as possible, develop their lives as they choose and to participate in as many of their previous roles and activities as possible.

At The Disabilities Trust we aim to guide service users through the entire process of rehabilitation, as well as offering support, education and continuing help to their families, carers and friends.
