Priory Grafton Manor is a level one and two, highly specialised rehabilitation unit, for males and females aged 18 years and older, with an acquired brain injury (ABI), including traumatic brain injury (TBI) and strokes. Due to our full multidisciplinary team approach, we are able to offer neurobehavioral, physical and occupational rehabilitation.

The site includes the following units:

  • Grafton Manor – 19 beds
  • Community houses in Northampton – 6 beds
  • 49 the Drive – 3-beds, male only
  • 51 the Drive – 3-beds, female only
  • Respite care – various levels of support, home-to-home basis, ABI and TBI patients, for periods of 4-6 weeks. We can manage more acute needs including hoisting and peg feeding. We can also design a package of rehabilitation support during the respite period

This established care pathway of 25 beds enables people with ABI to maximise their independence at any stage of their post-acute recovery journey.

Focus on Safety

Our absolute priority is to make sure we operate safe and effective services 24/7 and that all staff understand what is required of them to make that happen. Click here to read more.

Our approach

The rehabilitation programme at Grafton Manor is aimed at helping people who have experienced behavioural and physical changes as a consequence of brain injury, to ensure that they can live as full a life as possible. This includes moving onto further rehabilitation, our own step down settings, community settings or home.

Our programme is led by the transdisciplinary team including consultant phycology, consultant psychiatry, occupational therapy, physiotherapy, speech therapy and qualified RMN and RGN support. Our clinicians are at the forefront of research and development in this field, with many award-winning treatment innovations and excellent patient outcomes.

The main focus is to:

  • Maximise individual choice and autonomy
  • Promote empowerment
  • Allow the patient to obtain their optimum level of independence

Progress is recorded using valid outcome measures and results have clearly demonstrated the benefits of the programme.

Peter's story*

*Name has been changed

“My son suffered a stroke in January and after spending 10 weeks in hospital he was referred to Grafton Manor. I was feeling very anxious due to the fact that as well as physical needs my son also had mental health needs. 

After a period at Grafton Manor the difference in him was amazing, and not just physically but mentally as well, especially his confidence.

The way that discharge was carried out was perfect for my son, as it was done gradually. Both my son and myself will be forever grateful for the care he received while at Grafton Manor and I would most definitely highly recommend this amazing place.”

- Parent of a patient from Grafton Manor

Our evidence-based programme which is based on time-lined goals, aims to support successful, sustainable discharge. However, as residents progress, they also have the opportunity to step down and carry on their rehabilitation in other parts of the care pathway, including the community houses.

Physical health and wellbeing is an important part of brain injury rehabilitation. Grafton Manor has access to a GP who attends the unit regularly to see residents and who will address patients' physical health issues.

Grafton Manor is a member of the INPA:

An environment suited to recovery

The site, set in a quiet village in peaceful countryside, includes an attractive, historic and purpose-fitted cottage called The Chantry, as well as a flat and a studio flat. We also have two community houses situated in Kingsley just outside of Northampton.

In 1985, Grafton Manor was established as the UK's first neurobehavioural rehabilitation service to be established in a community setting, beyond the confines of a large psychiatric hospital campus.

Individuals are supported to access local primary care services such as the dentist, optician or chiropodist.
