Brain injuries can throw entire families into disarray. The aftermath is an incredibly stressful period for those that have sustained them, as well as their loved ones. Many people affected are left needing round-the-clock brain injury support.

A Flexible Approach to Brain Injury Rehabilitation

At Sensory Elite HealthCare, we provide Therapy-led brain injury care and rehabilitation. We provide care in the home, we’ve provided person-centric acquired brain injury care for many individuals with varying severities including traumatic brain injury support, hydrocephalus support, and after stroke care.

Care plans focus on activities to help relearn day to day tasks

We take a warm and flexible approach to caring for someone with a brain injury. You and your loved ones don’t need to move away from home with our brain injury support services. Our Support Workers are committed to providing the levels of help and support relevant to the ABI classification within the client’s own home.

The varying severity of these injuries means that there is no universal rehabilitation care plan for brain injury clent’s. By working closely with families, specialists, rehabilitation centres, therapists, and other organisations, we’re able to tailor our brain injury support to the meet the requirements of individuals that we work with.

A Brain Injury Therapy Care plan catered to you

Rehabilitation Rehabilitation

We also develop our brain injury home care plans around existing routines. In most cases, all care plans have a focus on neuro-rehabilitation activities to help relearn day to day tasks. Research has displayed that people who’ve had an early referral programme to neuro-rehabilitation in the acute stages of recovery experience significantly better emotional well-being, social integration and vocational functioning than those who receive rehabilitation services later on during the recovery process – this, despite having greater functional limitations upon entering the programme (Reid-Arndt et al; 2007).

Our support workers are trained to deliver rehabilitation and therapy support when needed. Through our brain injury support service, we can help people with daily tasks, like getting out of bed and dressed, bathing, as well as household tasks, like cleaning and preparing meals. Our specialist brain injury support workers are there to help people get around their homes when reduced mobility is an issue.

We’ve developed an innovative approach to communicating with our customers, incorporating a variety of methods. We always look to find a form of communication that suits you or your loved one. Ensuring that our brain injury support services work around you and your needs is of great importance. Your Support Worker will adapt to your requirements.

The decision to take on acquired brain injury support is daunting – a life-changing move. But we’re there, every step of the way, to explain the process. Our expert Occupational Therapist is always on-hand to provide information and advice.

Our specialist brain injury trained Support Workers

We’re meticulous in choosing the right carers to join our team. All of them go through a series of selection processes, and we aim to put in the Support Worker with the experience and skills able to meet your needs.

Our Support Workers are warm and positive in their approach to caring for someone with a brain injury. They’re enthusiastic about the role they play in the lives of their customers. Rather than just providing medical-centred brain injury care, our carers build bonds with the people they look after.

Some of them have delivered brain injury home care to their customers for a number of years. They’re always keen to chat, and find out about what the individual wants – allowing them to provide the exact level of help required.
