Ground-breaking ABI rehabilitation

Calvert Reconnections is a unique residential neuro-rehabilitation centre for people with post-acute ABI.

Working with leading clinicians and academics, we deliver cognitive and physical rehabilitation alongside daily living and vocational skills within the local community.

 

Our programme

Our participants, their families if appropriate, and our clinical therapy team work together to establish goals which address a range of areas including physical rehabilitation, mental wellbeing, and cognitive communication; all with the aim of maximising function.

Each goal is led by the participant to ensure maximum engagement and progress.

The process of goal setting is facilitated by our clinical team of Neuro Occupational Therapists, Neuro Physiotherapists, Neuro Speech and Language Therapists and Neuro Psychologists.

The process then feeds into the development of a personalised rehabilitation plan using a combination of functional and outdoor activities, uniquely integrated with clinical therapy.

Outcome Measures

Our clinicians use evidence-based clinical outcome measures to assess and monitor the participant’s progress.

Typically, the following outcome measures are used to show changes made by a participant between admission and discharge:

– Mayo-Portland Adaptability Scale-4
– FIM + FAM.
– Independent Recovery Outcome Counter (I-ROC)
During the in-depth assessment period clinicians will also decide on other profession-specific, evidence-based Outcome Measures, according to the participant’s needs.

Clinicians will also use their own objective and standardised professional assessments to inform decision making and any other assessments relevant to the participant’s needs.
