Hothfield Brain Injury Rehabilitation and Neurological Care Centre

At Hothfield we treat and care for patients over the age of 18 with a brain injury or other neurological condition such as multiple sclerosis, motor neurone disease and parkinson's disease.

There are three buildings on our 12 acre site:  the original Manor House, a separate brain injury rehabilitation centre and a row of seven bungalows.  We offer a range of services, from intense rehabilitation in the months immediately following a brain injury right through to independent living for those patients preparing to go home.  We also offer residential care.

Care at Hothfield Brain Injury Rehabilitation and Neurological Care Centre

Specialist Rehabilitation

Our purpose-built 17-bed rehabilitation unit provides assessment and intensive rehabilitation for patients with acquired brain injuries and other neurological conditions. We treat people who no longer need the high level of nursing or medical care provided by an NHS hospital but would benefit from a short period of rehabilitation.

Slow Stream Rehabilitation

This is for people who have either already undergone rehabilitation or who wouldn’t gain the maximum benefit from a short, intense rehabilitation programme. Slow Stream rehabilitation is designed for patients who need time to practise new skills before moving to a community-based setting or home.

Complex Disability Management

The focus is on providing relief from pain, discomfort or stress and is all about improving a client's everyday quality of life. Most clients have either severe and far -reaching disabilities or may be in the later stages of a progressive neurological condition. We can also provide respite care to give families and carers a much needed break.
