Brain Injury Care
At Interserve Healthcare around one in five of our clients have brain and spinal conditions. Our brain injuries support often includes help with personal care, feeding, hoisting and ventilation, tracheostomy care and medication.
Acquired brain injuries
The most common effect on an individual with an acquired brain injury, whether subtle or severe, will be changes to their everyday behaviour. To help each individual to return to living as full a life as possible following their injury, we work with multi-disciplinary care teams and incorporate their rehabilitation management plans to complement our own. Our aim is to equip the client and their family with the right tools to help them to cope with the changes in their lives.
We can support clients in the transition from hospital to home, be that returning to their own home or moving in with close family. To help clients to continue making progress, we will design a bespoke and structured support plan with guidance and input from therapists and other healthcare professionals.
