Acquired Brain Injury Care

Acquired brain injury (ABI) is a life-changing condition that requires rehabilitation to reclaim essential skills.


Acquired Brain Injury amongst many things, can be caused by:

  • Stroke and other vascular disorders
  • Traumatic brain injury e.g. from road traffic collisions, falls 
  • Brain tumour
  • Hypoxia/anoxia, such as from heart attacks, carbon monoxide poisoning, secondary complications of traumatic brain injury or complications during surgery (such as respiratory depression or embolism)
  • Brain abscess
  • Metabolic disorders (e.g. liver and kidney diseases and diabetic coma)
  • Other forms of poisoning and infectious disease
  • Electrolyte imbalances

The goal of our care support team in these cases is to support the client to help them with their daily activities, to promote independence with a focus on abilities, and to improve on their quality of life in their familiar home environment.


Being looked after in a safe home surrounding, supported by experienced carers can help people maintain a comfortable, fulfilling quality of life.

Our approach is to minimise the disruption of an acquired brain injury by providing the support families and friends need to help them cope.

This support returns to the family the opportunity of quality time with reduced stress for all.  As everyone’s experience and need are individual and unique, our care services can be tailored to specifically match your requirements.  Our Care Plans are agreed with you and reviewed regularly to ensure they continue to meet your needs.
