Acquired brain injury – care and support for younger adults

We understand that living with an acquired brain injury can be challenging. That’s why we’re here to help.

An acquired brain injury (ABI) can be the result of trauma to the head such as an impact following an accident, or the outcome of an illness, such as meningitis or a stroke. The effects of this can be short or long-term, and over time our individual care plans can adapt with you. If you experience complications with an ABI or your care needs present in a complex way, our Enable service has the skills and experience to support you.

We know that the impact of ABI on you, your family and loved ones can be highly emotional. Because of this, we provide both physical and emotional support. We want to enable you to continue living an independent and active life, in the comfort of your own home.

Our support workers all receive ABI training and have specific client needs led training, taught by internal and external trainers and/or healthcare professionals.

All our care and support workers complete the nationally recognised care certificate. Specific client needs-led training is taught by our training partner Training Now and healthcare professionals.

Some of those who we support with ABI’s also have additional presentations such as epilepsy, or other complex needs and behaviours that challenge. We understand the importance of a care plan and support worker who appreciates you individually, and that’s exactly the support that our Enable service is designed to provide.
