A residential inpatient brain injury unit like Inspire Neurocare provides specialised, 24-hour care and rehabilitation for brain injury patients, with a skilled team including carers or rehabilitation assistants, doctors, nurses, therapists, and psychologists.
Individuals who've experienced significant brain injuries, such as strokes or trauma, and who require intensive rehabilitation to regain or relearn abilities typically need inpatient care.
Rehabilitation outcomes depend on individual goals, injury severity, and overall health. Outcomes may include improved physical abilities, cognitive functions, speech and swallowing and emotional well-being.
At Inspire Neurocare, outcomes are measured against these goals on an ongoing basis.
The referral process usually begins with a referral from a doctor or funding body, usually while the individual is in hospital.
The Inspire team visit to assess the individual, creating a report detailing the rehabilitation pathway and care we can provide.
From this point, the referrer and family will review the assessment report, and if it is decided that Inspire Neurocare is the right place, the team will work with all those concerned to begin the admission process.
Inspire supports families throughout the recovery process. Our Wellbeing and Lifestyle Coach ensures loved ones are kept informed about progress, recovery, and discharge planning.
