Due to the variability in where brain injuries occur and the extent of those injuries, it is difficult to predict the long-term effects. The impact of a brain injury will differ for each person and can range from mild to profound.
Individuals with acquired brain injury (ABI) may experience increased mental and physical fatigue, as well as a slower processing speed for information, planning, and problem-solving. They may also experience changes in behaviour, personality, physical and sensory abilities, or thinking and learning.
Our team works closely with each individual, their family members, health professionals, and community agencies to develop and implement a person-centred support plan for our clients. The individual is always at the centre of planning, and we seek their preferences and input throughout the entire process.
Our qualified support staff and nurses specialize in high and complex behavioural needs. Working with the individual, our team develops goal-oriented support plans that prioritize independence, encouragement, mobility, and personal care, along with the development of new skills. Each support team member is recruited based on the specific care requirements and unique needs of the client and receives client-specific training.
In addition to clinical care, we provide wider support, including social interaction and involvement in interests and activities that can help support emotional wellbeing and quality of life for clients and their families affected by ABI. Ultimately, our goal is to help our clients go further and get the most out of their lives.
