Calvert Reconnections – the UK’s first intensive acquired brain injury (ABI) rehabilitation centre combining traditional inter-disciplinary clinical therapies with physical activity in the outdoors – is now taking referrals.
Located on the outskirts of the bustling market town of Keswick in the Lake District, Calvert Reconnections is a brand new neuro-rehabilitation, residential centre offering ground-breaking rehabilitation programmes for those who have suffered an ABI.
“We are absolutely delighted to have reached the stage where we are now taking referrals,” said Centre Director, Sean Day.
“Our focus will be on delivering clinical therapies alongside experienced activity instructors utilising challenging outdoor activities to support individuals in their recovery from brain injury.”
Calvert Reconnections’ rehabilitation assessment will identify the suggested duration of residential placement, a potential start date, any additional support requirements and the cost of the programme.
As part of the process, every individual will be initially assessed at home, with family, by the Clinical Lead. Programmeswill be developed with the individual based on clinical evidence and research guidance while a variety of physical activity, including outdoor adventure, will be available. Every programme will include realistic personal goals, utilising evidence-based validated outcome measures for monitor progress.
Calvert Reconnections has recently strengthened its senior management team with the appointment of Jill Beswick as Clinical Lead and Jo Glenholmes as Business Manager.
Jill Beswick qualified as an occupational therapist in 1990 and has worked across the specialities of adult rehabilitation both inpatient and community, always with a passion for neurological rehabilitation. Jo Glenholmes is a registered nurse with a background in neuropsychology and complex case management.
The centre is due to open in Spring 2020 and will be able to accommodate up to 10 participants at any given time. To find out more or to make a referral visit www.calvertreconnections.org.uk or call 017687 85381.
