This includes Acquired Brain Injury (ABI), Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI), Neuro-degenerative conditions such as Motor Neuron disease or Multiple Sclerosis, Huntington's Disease and strokes.
Our aim is to improve our service users’ mobility and independence and we also offer a seamless care pathway into the ABI services of Craegmoor, our adult residential service.
Our intensive rehabilitation site caters for 16 service users aged 18 years and over by delivering clinically effective, evidenced-based services.
