Our Services for Clients

 

We believe in a participative approach to your rehabilitation – as a client, you’ll undergo an initial assessment where we work with you to identify your own individual support and rehabilitation needs. This tailored approach enables us to work with you to agree worthwhile activities – and set meaningful goals – that will help you to get the most out of the time you spend with us.

 

We offer a wide range of activities to help you achieve your goals. All the activities are aimed at increasing independence and confidence, and will form an integral part of your tailored rehabilitation programme.

Cognitive Sessions

Community Brain Injury Advisor Service

 

This service was introduced as a pilot project in mid 2011.  It is a two – year project, funded by the Harpur Trust.  The project aim is to provide help and advice for clients whose problems are not great enough to justify attendance at the centre, or who have finished their time here and need more assistance in finding other community activities to move on to.

 

Our Services for Families and Carers

 

At Headway Bedford we recognise that the traumatic effects of brain injury are not just experienced by the clients, but also by everyone around them, including their families and carers.

 

 

We’ll make sure you’re fully involved in the client’s initial assessment, goal setting, and regular reviews. We’ll also offer you separate one-to-one meetings to discuss your own needs Read more about our services for families and carers
