Priory Mount Eveswell - Newport, Wales

Priory Mount Eveswell is a specialist care centre in Newport, South Wales which provides leading person-centred neuro-rehabilitation programmes bespoke to the severity and complexity of a person’s particular neuro-disability. 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. The unit provides rehabilitation for a range of service users, including those with prolonged disorders of consciousness (low awareness or minimally conscious state) to those who are independent in many activities. In addition, Mount Eveswell offers a low intensity rehabilitation service. This allows service users the opportunity to continue to achieve their rehabilitation potential within a community-based setting, which maximises opportunities to enhance the service user's quality of life.

Outcome measures

In order to ensure that our service users receive the very best treatment throughout every stage of their rehabilitation, we regularly monitor their progress using a range of outcome measures, including:

  • Functional Independence Measure and Functional Assessment Measure
  • Northwick Park Therapy Dependency Scale 

Outcomes are also measured by a reduction in the amount of medical and nursing care that the individual require. Service users are often admitted with complex postural needs and through intensive therapy achieve improved musculoskeletal health, skin integrity, reduced chest infections and as a consequence, a lower frequency of hospital admissions.

Family involvement

The centre prides itself on recognising families as central to the wellbeing of the service user and they are encouraged to play a key role in goal setting and care planning.
