Walker Lodge

Walker Lodge is a purpose-built service, offering proactive residential support and respite services for individuals with an acquired brain injury. The focus of the service is to provide a supportive environment in order for people to develop skills and strategies in order to lead a more fulfilled and independent life.

Supporting you

Skill development is achieved through person centred goal setting and through specialised intervention from the therapy team. Neuro-psychology, neuro-physiotherapy, neuro- speech and language therapy and neuro-OT are available where required, and therapy goals are integrated into functional daily living tasks by the support team.

The service caters for individuals who may have the following conditions:

  • A head or brain injury.
  • Individuals who may have difficulties with their cognitive and/ or executive functioning skills.
  • Individuals with ongoing therapeutic needs.
  • Individuals with physical or sensory impairment.
  • Individuals with a dual diagnosis (e.g. mental health) provided brain injury is leading difficulty.
  • Individual presenting behavioural challenges provided brain injury is leading difficulty.

We have a proven track record of supporting people to gain greater independence, and supporting people to move into their own independent accommodation where appropriate. Walker Lodge is also able to support individuals who may require longer term support, and regular reviews are held to ensure the service is responsive to an individual’s changing needs.

Walker Lodge is committed to person-centred support planning and reviews, maximising personal ownership and motivation, thereby supporting the multidisciplinary team to work in line with an individual’s aspirations, whilst still maintaining their safety and wellbeing.

Facilities

The home has eight level access rooms with en-suite facilities. The property is fully wheelchair accessible, with the capacity for ceiling tracked hoists, profiling beds and other adaptations if an individual requires them. We actively encourage people to bring their own belongings and decorate rooms in the style that suits their personality. Other facilities include a dining room with patio doors leading out onto a level access garden, a large accessible kitchen, a bathroom, a spacious lounge and an activity/ therapy room.

Location

Walker Lodge is situated in Norris Green, Liverpool, and offers ready access to local healthcare services, shops and social and leisure facilities. There is easy access by road to the city centre or the surrounding countryside or coast and the service is within four miles of the westbound M62.
