Brain Injury Care

There are two main types of Brain Injury:

Acquired Brain Injury (ABI) –  The result of damage to the brain received at birth.

Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) – The result of damage to the brain caused by a severe blow or sudden impact often as a result of an accident, fall or assault.

Interserve Healthcare works with many clients with both types of brain injury and as each type is unique, our specialist support packages focus specifically on the effects that our clients have to live with day to day. Whether these are:

  • Cognitive – attention and concentration, memory, visuospatial and perceptual.
  • Emotional and Behavioural – agitation, impulsivity, depression, anxiety, poor motivation.
  • Physical Effects - Dyspraxia, fatigue, movement, balance and coordination.
  • Communication Problems – Aphasia, Cognitive communication, speech difficulties.
  • Hormonal Imbalance - Hypopituitarism
  • Executive Dysfunction – Planning and multitasking, controlling emotions, decision making.

Providing support to individuals and families.

We recognise that brain injury doesn’t just affect the individual but also affects the whole family, meaning many different obstacles and barriers have to be overcome along the way. From the initial shock of the injury to the gradual acceptance that things may never be the same again, Interserve Healthcare’s skilled and experienced Support Workers are there to provide support, advice and guidance not only to the individual but also to the family unit to help them rebuild their lives.

Bespoke Service Delivery

By really understanding brain injuries and the effects the individual has to live with, we are able to tailor the delivery of our support packages to ensure that our clients and their families feel supported at all times and that support is delivered in such a way as not to cause anxiety or confusion.

Examples of how we do this are:

  • Forward planning and delivery of Support Worker rotas – To ensure clients know who will be supporting them on a daily basis well in advance and as much as possible keeping support workers to set days each week, minimising disruption to routine which can lead to anxiety.
  • Regularly inviting family members to the training courses that we run – Enabling them to further understand the emotional and cognitive effects that the injury bestowed and the practical ways in which they can aid rehabilitation at home.

Achieving Positive Outcomes

Interserve Healthcare has achieved many positive and successful outcomes in the brain injury field. These have come about through not only the skills and experience of the Support Workers we provide, but also the way that our support packages integrate with the Multi-Disciplinary Team (MDT) working with each individual client. By working alongside Neuropsychologists, Speech and Language Therapists, Occupational Therapists and Case Managers, our Support Workers are able to support the wider rehabilitation goals of the MDT.

By working in partnership with other professionals and being trained to undertake client specific exercises, we are able to observe and record the impact, both emotionally and physically that this has on the client, allowing us to achieve the best possible outcomes through the evidence-based support we provide.
