Acquired Brain Injury (ABI)​

An Acquired Brain Injury (ABI) represents one of the most complex and misunderstood areas of care and carries a distinct set of challenges. Much like any injury sustained, there is a recovery and acceptance phase - for not only the client, but also their loved ones.
But with an ABI this impact can be even more significant.
