Frequently Asked Questions

An acquired brain injury is an injury to the brain that is not genetic, congenital, degenerative, or caused by a birth trauma. It is a type of brain injury that has occurred after birth. It is also an umbrella term for all brain injuries, which are further split into two categories: traumatic and non-traumatic.

If your family or friend is affected by an acquired brain injury, read about the effects of brain injury and speak to them about which of the effects they experience. Encourage them to seek support from their GP or local adult social care team. Look out for your friend and family and offer help where needed, whether it is to lend a helping hand with shopping or occasional looking after their children or pets.

Acquired brain injury care at home can provide various benefits for those recovering post-brain injury. Assistance with activities of daily living tasks, rehabilitation, respite care, safety and emotional support are just a few to mention. ABI care at home contributes to and promotes recovery, and aids improving quality of life by helping with independence in one’s own home.

Ensure that the care provider has experience working with individuals with ABI in particular. Carers and nurses should have training and be qualified in ABI care. The care provider should offer a personalised care plan addressing the person’s specific condition, goals and preferences. Family involvement in the care plan development should also be supported as this often offers a greater refinement. Finally, consider the reputation of your care provider, search reviews online and gain insight into their services.

We can't thank you enough

I just want to thank you both again for arranging continuous 24hr cover on such short notice and in such a trying time where resources are so strained. Without you, my mum would have likely spent additional weeks in hospital, denying her what she truly wanted – which was to die peacefully at home with her family. You and the nursing staff facilitated this, and we can’t thank you enough.

Outstanding Care

Thank you so very much for supporting Lynne through what has been an unprecedented time. Thank you for the outstanding care you all have continued to provide despite hugely difficult times brought about by the Covid virus. The excellent training, attention to detail, organisation, communication devotion and compassion of all of your team during this time and in fact since you agreed to care for Lynne, is an absolute credit to you and our family wish to say a huge thank you to you all. The challenges of late stage MS are huge without the added difficulties of the pandemic. As you are aware without the astute nature and excellent training of your team, the recent situation that occurred for Lynne may have led to a very different outcome. I am so relieved to see Lynne back home and looking more like herself.

It has exceeded my expectations

“I would just like to say how impressed and extremely pleased I am with Cavendish Homecare. From the first contact with Mairead just 8 days ago to a detailed conversation with Denise 2 days later leading to Lea commencing her full time live-in role looking after my parents last Thursday, it has exceeded my expectations.”
