Expert neuro-rehabilitation in a stimulating lakeland environment

Calvert Reconnections is a neuro-rehabilitation centre for people with Acquired Brain Injury (ABI). Based in a specially-adapted residential centre on the outskirts of Keswick in the Lake District, our expert clinical therapy team combines cognitive and physical rehabilitation with vocational and outdoor activities delivered within a unique non-clinical environment.


Personalised care, experience and expertise

Built on over 40 years of expertise, at Calvert Reconnections, we tailor our programmes around the individual needs of our participants, working closely with them to establish their goals and develop a personalised rehabilitation plan that helps achieve them.

An innovative, evidence-based approach

Our approach involves an interdisciplinary team of Neuro Physiotherapists, Occupational, Speech and Language Therapists, Psychologists and Outdoor Practitioners working together to maximise a participant’s physical and cognitive potential while improving their daily living skills.

People with ABI can sometimes find the set procedures of neuro-rehabilitation too clinical, inflexible and impersonal. Meaning they fall through the gaps and don’t achieve the outcomes they could.

At Calvert Reconnections, we believe in doing things differently. At our unique neuro-rehabilitation centre, we bring together the beauty and benefits of the great outdoors with the very best in person-centred care — delivered in an enjoyable, homely environment that inspires and supports people to become the best they can be.

Helping people find new ways to connect

Acquired Brain Injury is life-changing. It can leave people feeling lost, apprehensive and reliant on others. At Calvert Reconnections, we help people face and embrace their new normal. Enabling them to discover their passion and find new ways to connect. Empowering them to push perceived limitations and become more independent.
