Live-in Care for Acquired Brain InjuryFind out more about how our ABI Care can support you
Abicare prides itself on the quality of care and support provided for those with both acquired and traumatic brain injuries, assisting you to adjust, integrate and achieve, thus ensuring your injury does not define who you are
What is ABI Care?
Abicare can provide Acquired Brain Injury Care by supporting you with either visiting or live-in carers; we play as big a role as you need us to. Our home care service is designed to fit around any existing support and to complement any current treatment you or your loved one may be receiving.
We understand that every person’s needs are different which is why we will visit you in your home to discuss how best we can help and support you to live your life.
Benefits of ABI Care at Home
The needs of someone who requires ABI Care can differ greatly depending on the severity of the Brain Injury and its effects, which may be hormonal, sensory, cognitive, or emotional/behavioural.
Receiving specialist home care in familiar surroundings can hugely improve the lives of people who require ABI Care. With a person-centred Abicare care plan, we can help you to stay in your own home for longer.
Our carers can help with those everyday tasks that give a reassuring routine in familiar surroundings. Some of the benefits of this type of care are:
- Stay in your own home, surrounded by any loved ones or pets you live with.
- Free up family from domestic tasks and get more quality time together.
- Respite care to give your usual caregiver a break.
- Keep your independence.
Live-in ABI Care
A brain injury can affect anyone, often suddenly and at any age, and will most certainly mean significant life changes, not only for the person with the injury ABI, but also their family and friends.
Live-in care makes it possible for a person with a brain injury to stay in the familiarity of their own home while receiving specialist care. As well as everyday tasks, your Abicare live-in carer will help support you to maintain your independence within your home.
Whatever the level of care or tasks you need help with, live-in care is often a more appropriate alternative to a residential brain injury care home. Find out more on how Abicare’s live-in services help people with a brain injury, including 24/7 live-in care, night sits, respite care for your regular caregiver, and companionship care.
Our ABI Carers
We understand that the effects of ABI/TBI are life changing for the individual, their family and friends, which is why we ensure that our carers really understand the emotional impact of both acquired and traumatic brain injury – they are aware of how the brain functions, the Glasgow Coma Scale, and are trained in how best to manage the often challenging behaviours associated with Brain inury such as , irritability, lack of social judgement, impulsivity, poor decision making and lack of motivation.
Working with the multi agency teams, they are there to ensure you are getting the most out of life.
