Acquired Brain Injury (ABI)
Brain injuries affect people in many different ways. While some injuries are short-lived, others can change a person’s personality traits or cognitive abilities permanently, which can make independent living a real challenge. In such complex conditions and our specialist team are trained to the highest standards in the care and management of ABI conditions and the multi-faceted symptoms presented.
To create the best care plan for your needs we offer two solutions:
- We offer high standards of care to young adults from 16 in the Preston and Morecambe areas. Our team work closely with families to create a solution that provides specialist care and support in the comfort of their own home, avoiding change and distress.
- When home care is not an option, we offer young adults from 18 years old residential care in our bright and modern home Holywell Bridgeway in Preston. This is a purpose-built home that offers an array of exceptional facilities ensuring exemplary care and support.
As the name suggests, this service is for clients who want to stay in their homes, retain their independence but need the reassurance of they are safe and supported in their everyday routines. A live-in carer does just that – they will live with you in your home, get to know you and your routines and provide support services as required.
If live-in care isn’t essential just yet, but there is a need for several visits a day to support and care then this is an option we can offer. Our carers visit you at home on a regular schedule to suit your needs but do not live with you.
Sometimes our clients spend time using our services either at Holywell Bridgeway or in the community because they are facing a setback in life or have a particular challenge they need support with, usually across the spectrum of lived experience of mental illness and other forms of disability.
Again, we provide a choice of solutions to suit our clients.
- At Holywell Bridgeway clients come to stay for a period of time to become rehabilitated from whatever condition they had that set them back. With our care and support they undergo rehabilitation to a point when they are then able to return to live in the community as they did prior to going into hospital and into our care.
- We also support young people (over the age of 18) with learning disabilities or challenging behaviours to learn to live independently, feel connected in the community and live fulfilled lives. We listen, understand and find ways to help you reach your goals providing the support levels needed.
