Head injury rehabilitation
There is some good news for those in need of head injury rehabilitation services in West Wales, as work started in August 2013 on a new centre of medical excellence designed to help those in need of head injury rehabilitation in the area. The rehabilitation centre based in Llanelli will be able to help people who have suffered a head or brain injury in an assault, accident, illness or a stroke. It is funded by the Brain Injury Rehabilitation Trust.
Head injury rehabilitation services
If you or a relative has been discharged from hospital and has suffered brain damage after a head injury, then you are entitled to seek head injury rehabilitation services. Even if you have been told there are no such services available in your area, you can contact organisations such as Headway Helpline which can put you in contact with the head injury rehabilitation services.
The British Society of Rehabilitation Medicine (BSRM) has issued guidelines for brain and head injury rehabilitation and states that family members have a very important role to play in such rehabilitation. These state:
“Family members are very often a crucial asset to the patient, providing both long-term support and a major contribution to the rehabilitation process. It is also important for the team to recognise that family members often have a special rapport with the patient and may detect subtle communication in advance of the professionals.”
