Pickwick

Pickwick provides tailored, individual rehabilitation programmes for people with brain injury and neurodisability.

Acquired Brain Injury can present itself in dramatically different ways: while some individuals may be able to lead very independent lives, in profound cases individuals may have a high dependency on social support.

All residents who come into Pickwick unit undergo a comprehensive assessment to establish the level of cognitive impairment that they are experiencing. The assessment of the clients’ abilities allows the care plan to be specifically developed and progress to be accurately measured. The development of the Individual Service Plan follows the assessment and focuses on a program of activities that enables the relearning of previous skills and the acquisition of new skills where possible.

The plan also focuses on compensatory strategies to reduce the impact of Acquired Brain Injury on the clients’ daily living. The aim of the assessment and care plan is always to enable the client to achieve as high a degree of independence as possible.
