At The Woodlands we provide support for up to 14 individuals who have a brain injury. We aim to support you to regain your social, cognitive and independence skills, and to develop your confidence. You will have the opportunity to progress from one of our bedrooms in the main home to one of our independent flats as your skills improve.
We offer a range of therapies including speech and language, Neuro-physiotherapy, Neuro-occupational therapy and Psychology input. Programmes are carefully designed and integrated into your daily routine.
Our support is based on rehabilitation techniques which strive to increase your independence and, where considered appropriate, progress is monitored closely using Goal Attainment Scaling. You are encouraged to create your own activity programme, which is tailored to your interests and makes full use of facilities available in the local community. A diverse programme of activities is offered, tailored to individual tastes. These include outdoor pursuits, music, art and life skills workshops.
The Woodlands is situated in a pleasant, residential area of Middlesbrough, known as Acklam. There are a wide range of education and leisure facilities in the area, including colleges, shops, pubs, bowling centres, an ice skating rink and sports centres.
The service has ten spacious en-suite bedrooms. All of the rooms have the option of ceiling tracking if required, and the whole building is wheelchair accessible. We also have one self-contained ﬂat and three step-down bungalows at the back of the property. Individuals can progress from one of our bedrooms to the independent ﬂat/bungalows as their skills improve. There are also a number of spacious shared areas, giving the choice of socialising or spending time alone.
