Actions speak louder than words and reach doesn't just talk about what rehabilitation can do, we monitor and analyse case outcomes and strive to attain optimum benefits for clients that have received traumatic brain injury, which has long term cost benefits to insurers.
We have published a number of case studies that illustrate the benefits of our home-based rehabilitation programmes.
For nearly 20 years reach has been the national leader in providing rehabilitation to adults following a moderate or severe traumatic brain injury (TBI). By evaluating a consecutive series of our home-based rehabilitation programmes for 13 adult participants with severe TBI and applying the Brain Injury Community Rehabilitation Outcome (BICRO) scale as a quantative measure, we have been able to show empirically that our approach results in significant improvements to key areas of the participants life, including personal care, mobility, self-organisation, socialisation, productive employment and mental health. If you would like to read more, the evaluation report is available for download.
Due in part to our success with the rehabilitation of adults after TBI and with some encouragement from insurers, we expanded our service several years ago to include children with traumatic brain injuries, for whom there was limited provision in the UK.
A survey we commissioned highlighted that a child receiving only limited rehabilitation and follow-up will be at a significantly increased risk of not finishing education and will have reduced capacity to source and maintain paid employment. The full survey review is available for download.
