An ABI is described as an injury caused to the brain after birth. There may be many possible needs for brain injury care, including a fall, a road accident, infection, tumour and stroke.
An ABI can affect a person’s memory and thought processes, physical ability, speech and language, swallowing, physical ability, psychological functioning and behaviour.
An ABI can cause great turmoil for all those involved and as impairments are not always visible, the impact of a brain injury is sometimes underestimated.
The varying nature of these types of injuries means that a flexible, fully-tailored approach to brain injury care is absolutely paramount.
