Care at Stocksbridge

Slow Stream Rehabilitation

Our slow stream rehabilitation service is suitable for people who need a longer period of less intense rehabilitation. It is suitable for those who need time to practise newly learnt skills in a variety of everyday situations before returning to live at home,

We can also organise assessment for people in low states of awareness using SMART (Sensory Modality Assessment and Rehabilitation Technique) assessment.

Complex Disability Management

This service is for people who have problems associated with a brain injury or neurological condition and who cannot be looked after at home, usually because of the high level of nursing care they need. Patients may also need regular medical investigations or monitoring which are not easily available in a normal residential home or their own home.

Respite Care

This service is available to people with a brain injury or neurological condition who live at home but who could benefit from a short stay in a specialist centre.

It also offers a much-needed break for families and carers and is an opportunity for individuals to have their needs reassessed.

What people say about us

Reviews of our approach and how we've helped our patients

The day he arrived, I felt that my brother had come 'home'. The amazing people were waiting to meet him and work with him and he changed almost overnight.

Advice and Support

Involving family as partners

We believe we get better outcomes when people are involved as partners in the assessing and planning of their care, and that involves families too. Each of our patients is assessed as an individual, and care is reviewed regularly. Families are included in all decisions about care.

The Stocksbridge team

Our team at Stocksbridge is managed by Jill Salmon. We have specialists in psychology, physiotherapy, occupational therapy, speech and language therapy, nursing, and social and recreation, as well as housekeeping, catering, maintenance and administration staff.
