For Carers

Carers Evenings:

Headway intends to offer one evening per month for carers and/or other relatives of those who have ABI to meet and share experience and gain peer support.

 

Signposting:

The staff at Headway will endeavour to ensure that people with ABI and their carers/relatives are sign posted to the most appropriate services that are required to support their need.

 

Source of information:

Headway AV will provide a range of literature relating to brain injury.

 

Confidence:

Headway AV provides a safe environment for those individuals with ABI.  This provides carers with confidence that their relative is attending a service which has a good understanding of ABI and provides positive support to enable them to continue to engage in the rehabilitation pathway and integration into the community.

 

Education:

Headway AV has knowledgeable staff who are able to provide education and understanding of ABI to relatives and carers.

 

Drop in clinic:

A drop in clinic is held every 3 months for relatives or individuals with an ABI where an assessment of the persons needs can be carried out.
