Edinburgh Headway Group aims to empower and enrich the lives of adults who have survived an acquired brain injury. We support both adults with brain injuries and their families and carers. Our day service activities are currently suspended in response to recent government guidelines, however, please be advised that we are diversifying our services to meet this situation and will be increasing our telephone and email support and also looking to offer virtual services to both adults with an acquired brain injury and carers.
We also wish to ensure that our support services remains accessible to the wider community so if you know anyone who has an acquired brain injury or who is supporting someone with an acquired brain injury, please continue to share our contacts with them. Edinburgh Headway Group is here for you so please do not hesitate to reach out to us.
Here is what we are doing:
We are providing and have increased our telephone support:
- Our members (and carers) are receiving daily calls from the staff team to ensure we continue to provide vital support to all at this time
- Our aim is to keep connecting with our members and carers to provide motivation, stability and structure
- We have linked with community support networks, partner charities and our health and social care partners to ensure we have access/latest information to respond to life concerns e.g. access to on-line shopping, money worries, mental health needs etc
We have utilised technology to deliver our rehabilitation services online to maintain continuity to our member’s daily structure, such as:
- On-line cognitive activities for our adults with brain injury
- On-line physical rehabilitation videos and live sessions
- Private Facebook groups/chat rooms to ensure our members and carers can keep connected, maintain friendships and provide a forum for peer support
