What is an acquired brain injury?

An acquired brain injury (ABI) is where brain damage has occurred. This can be fafter birth, rather than as a part of a genetic or congenital disorder. For example, an ABI can occur due to trauma to the head, disease or infection, oxygen deprivation, alcohol or drug abuse, or a stroke.

The long-term effects vary from person to person, and are impossible to predict. They may manifest as physical effects, such as fatigue or motor disorders, mental effects, such as memory loss or aphasia, or emotional and behavioural effects, such as depression or self-control issues.

What is ABI care?

ABI care is available to support you in any way you need, tailored to your symptoms. From assistance with daily tasks such as household cleaning, laundry, personal care, medication administration, meal preparation, and assistance with mobility and getting out into the community, to more specific support, including complex health requirements such as catheters, gastrostomy tubes, or tracheostomy tubes. We can also support you with any external rehabilitation programmes you may be following.

The benefits of ABI care

Our Care Professionals are fully trained and competent in your specialist care needs. With the appropriate training in relation to your ABI classification, they will help you during even the most acute rehabilitation phases. Evidence suggests effective professional support helps reduce the number of possible complications and the need for hospital admissions. Although long-term outcomes can depend upon the type and severity of the injury, treatment and rehabilitation is crucial to recovery.
