Maeres House provides support to eight adults with brain injuries.
We support individuals who would benefit from increasing their independence in a supportive community setting. We adopt a person-centred approach, aiming to support each person to regain their social, cognitive and independence skills, and to develop their confidence.
Speech and language, neuro-physiotherapy, neuro-occupational therapy and neuro-psychology input is available as required. Programmes are be carefully designed and integrated into each person's daily routine.
Support will be based on rehabilitation techniques which strive to increase independence, and progress will be monitored closely using Goal Attainment Scaling, which provides motivation.
