Brain injury rehabilitation

PiC is at the forefront of delivering successful rehabilitation programmes for people with complex neuro-behavioural presentations following an acquired brain injury. The treatment pathway is comprised of two specialist services:

The team works collaboratively with all external agencies to formulate appropriate care pathways

Brain Injury Services – Essex provides intensive cognitive therapy rehabilitation programmes for detained and informal male patients with challenging behaviour. The patient’s rehabilitation programme commences at Elm Park where their behaviour will be addressed and they will be given the skills to live more independently. Once the patient has received a suitable level of skill and independence they usually move into either Elm Park Community House or Elm Park Community Cottage. Their rehabilitation programme will continue until such a time as the patient can return home or move to independent or supported living.

Brain Injury Services – Northampton provides intensive rehabilitation for informal male and female patients who have challenging behaviour. Similar to Brain Injury Services – Essex, the patient and their team build an individualised rehabilitation programme which will enable them to develop the skills to live independently. There is also an onsite cottage, flat and bed-sit which can help smooth transition into a community setting. The patient may move to one of the two community houses in Northampton to prepare them to move on to an independent placement.

The overarching therapeutic purpose of our brain injury services is to maximise patient potential to achieve the highest level of quality of life, functional independence and adjustment to the post-injury order that their capability will allow them to achieve.

Driven by Psychology and Occupational Therapy, our brain injury services primary therapeutic orientation is Cognitive Behaviour Therapy which also includes Relational Neurobehavioral Therapy. The service places varying emphasis on the behavioural components of these therapies to meet the individual needs and requirements of patients as these arise and are informed by individual comprehensive, detailed and continuous neuropsychological assessments which are especially designed to meet the individual needs of the patients. The assessments are evaluation-based consisting of systematic progress charts and of the views, suggestions and preferences of the patients, families, carers and funders.

The experienced and dedicated multidisciplinary teams have the capability and expertise to design new therapeutic services or to further develop existing ones depending on clinical need and the requirements of the referral sources.
