ABIRS is a specialist resource that works directly with people with brain injuries or supports other services regarding their clinical management.
Its main responsibility is the assessment and rehabilitation management of people with recent severe acquired brain injuries. This represents a catastrophic event that permanently changes the lives of those experiencing it and their families.
The work requires an intensely person-centred and bio-psycho-social approach supported by expert knowledge of neuropsychology and neurological rehabilitation. This focuses on the restoration of a new sense of personal identity, the avoidance and management of risk and the recovery of participative and vocational activity.
The service may need to work with individual people over several months and can only take on a limited number of referrals.
