In Dorset in 2016/17 a total of 5,108 hospital admissions were made with some form of Acquired Brain Injury (ABI), which is roughly someone every 1.5 hours.
Prama have been delivering services in support of people living with long-term effects of an acquired brain injury since 2016. Packages of care vary from just a few hours a week to something more substantial.
Envision is a service that promotes the potential of each individual. Our work is focused on identifying with an individual the things that they want to reengage with, new things to try and, goals for the future. Working collaboratively with other professionals, we provide essential non-clinical support immediately post hospital discharge as well as a more long-term ongoing support.
