Located in Milton Keynes, Thomas Edward Mitton 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).
What does it do?
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.
Facilities and environment
Set in attractive landscaped gardens, Thomas Edward Mitton House offers an outstanding setting for rehabilitation. All service users have their own comfortable en suite bedrooms, complemented by spacious and well-appointed communal areas for dining and relaxation.
Rehabilitation takes place in a modern, tranquil and superbly equipped environment, with a special emphasis on assistive technology. Service users enjoy access to a wide range of therapeutic and recreational activities including cooking and computer skills and a dedicated games room.
In addition to the main 16-bed residential centre there are two nearby transitional living units where service users can continue their rehabilitation in a community environment. We also offer three supported houses - permanent homes where residents who have reached their optimum level of independence are able to live with staff support.
Access to the wider community forms an important part of rehabilitation. Its close proximity to shops and leisure facilities and easy access to the centre of Milton Keynes make Thomas Edward Mitton House ideally situated for social integration and also offers opportunities for education and work placements.
