About The Role

We are a 32 bed centre, with the service split between two wards

Neuro rehabilitation Unit- We offer active short-term (approximately 12 weeks) rehabilitation for individuals who have significant physical, speech, functional or cognitive needs that require specialist multi-disciplinary neuro rehabilitation. Individuals each have identified rehabilitation goals and are provided with a structured therapy programme to help them relearn and practice functional movements and everyday skills to give them the best chance of returning home. We can be flexible with the programmes we offer and support those who require an extended period of rehabilitation.

Manor Unit- This service is located in the original manor house and is suitable for those individuals who, as a result of their brain injury, are unable to live at home independently. Whilst they may not have complex nursing needs or require regular therapy, they do need round the clock support to manage everyday tasks, to keep safe and to have a good quality of life.

The unit itself is set within beautiful grounds providing a calm and positive working environment.
