Welcome to Osman House

Located in the pleasant village of Scholes on the outskirts of Leeds, Osman House provides specialist care and support in a small residential environment, for up to 10 individuals with an acquired brain injury (ABI). It is designed to smooth the transition between brain injury rehabilitation at a main Brain Injury Rehabilitation Trust (BIRT) centre or similar environment, and a move into the community. It also offers a continuing rehabilitation service.

Individuals coming to Osman House are likely have completed an initial programme of rehabilitation, perhaps with the NHS or at another BIRT service or brain injury provider. Our specialist care and support service, and continuing rehabilitation service incorporate an individually tailored programme for all service users. We aim to support service users to maintain rehabilitation goals previously achieved, and use the neurobehavioural approach in our work.

Service users programmes include 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.

About Osman House

Who we support

At Osman House, we support people with an acquired brain injury 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. In addition to brain injury, service users may have any of the following conditions:

  • Cognitive problems
  • Challenging behaviour
  • A history of mental health problems
  • Require prompting and assistance with self-care.
  • A history of drug or alcohol abuse but are sufficiently well-controlled to engage in rehabilitation.

Jay's Story

39-year-old Jay sustained a brain injury after a fall down a flight of stairs. After discharge from general hospital, Jay was placed in a nursing home but, although he was offered physiotherapy, lacked engagement, and was often aggressive towards staff. After rehabilitation at Daniel Yorath House, Jay’s physical ability and memory increased, while his aggression and social isolation were reduced. Due to his longer term rehabilitation needs, Jay transferred to Osman House, where he continues to make significant progress, enabling him to plan for the future and hopefully achieve his bigger goal of returning home to his wife and children.
