Situation

Acquired brain injury is a long-term condition which can result in a complex range of physical, cognitive and emotional problems. Survivors of brain injury often lack self-confidence and motivation. In many instances family relationships break down, leaving people isolated and without support. An apparent lack of 'physical' disabilities can mean that health & social care professionals and the general public underestimate the difficulties faced by people living with an acquired brain injury.

Solution

Headway East London provides a welcoming community which respects and values the contribution made by all its members. Specialist assessment identifies each individual's specific needs & abilities. A personalised therapy programme will then facilitate the setting and achievement of goals, by a combination of neurological physiotherapy, counselling and occupational therapy. The sharing of developing skills within Headway and the wider community increases confidence and positive self-identity.
