The effects of brain injury are complex and varied, causing a range of physical, psychological and mental health difficulties. A brain injury can affect someone’s personality and behaviour as well as their cognitive abilities and mental health – and all of these aspects can be inter-related, creating additional challenges.
Activities of daily living require a huge range of cognitive skills, which we develop from childhood as we grow. However, someone who has an acquired brain injury has to re-learn many of these skills. At Richardson Care we take an holistic approach, where members of our clinical team work with each service user to develop the skills they have lost.
Each service user at our specialist residential care homes has their own individual care plan, which is designed to provide therapies and activities to meet their needs and help them to reach their personal goals. These therapies may include psychological support, psychiatry, speech & language therapy, occupational therapy, physiotherapy as well as exercise and activities of daily living.
