Priory Grafton Manor provides highly specialised neurobehavioural rehabilitation for males and females aged 18 years and older, with an acquired brain injury (ABI), including traumatic brain injury (TBI) and strokes.
The site split consists of:
- Grafton Manor – 13 beds
- The Chantry – 3 beds
- Cottage, flat and studio flat – 3 beds
- Community houses in Kingsley – 6 beds
Our community houses are 49 the Drive (3-bedded male only) and 51 the Drive (3-bedded female only).
This established care pathway of 25 beds enables people with ABI to maximise their independence at any stage of their post-acute recovery journey.
The rehabilitation programme at Grafton Manor is particularly aimed at helping people who have experienced cognitive, behavioural and emotional changes as a consequence of brain injury, to ensure that they can access all areas of rehabilitation.
Our programme is led by the transdisciplinary team, and 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.
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.
