Further Details

The East Midlands Centre for Neurobehavioural Rehabilitation is situated in Melton Mowbray in Leicestershire.

We provide a specialist service for men and women over the age of 18 with a brain injury who present with behaviours that impede their ability to rehabilitate. The centre provides specialised neuropsychiatric and psychological assessment, positive and consistent approaches to behaviour management and cognitive rehabilitation.

The centre accepts people who may require:
> Physical rehabilitation
> Support with mental health issues
> PEG management
> Tracheostomy management
> Support where there is no functional understanding of language
> Detention under the Mental Health Act

The programme is delivered by our experienced team of in-house clinicians comprising:
> Consultant Neuropsychiatrist
> Registered Nurses
> Occupational Therapist
> Speech and Language Therapist
> Physiotherapist
> Psychologist
> Rehabilitation Assistants

We also offer shorter term admissions, around 12 _ 16 weeks, for assessment only. The average length of stay at the centre is 11 months and 50% of patients are discharged back home with appropriate support. Others are discharged to social care funded placements in the similar timescale. The multidisciplinary neuro-rehabilitation programme focusses on the relearning of functional self-care and independence skills and makes full use of community
facilities as soon as is possible and safe.
