Acquired Brain Injury (ABI)

An acquired brain injury (ABI) can result from conditions including stroke, brain tumours, infection, poisoning, hypoxia, ischemia, encephalopathy or substance abuse.

While the cause may vary, an ABI is likely to result in both physical and emotional effects. In some cases it will lead to permanent disability and can affect an individual’s understanding, emotions and behaviour, potentially creating long-term health and other care needs and taking individuals in new and challenging directions.

Larkstone Supported Living’s flexible services are ideally suited to supporting service users with an acquired brain injury (ABI) to live independently, either within our supported living services or in their own homes.

Working with the service users, their families and other stakeholders, we design and deliver person-centred care packages designed to support clients in living life the way they choose and in moving towards greater independence.

For more information about our supported living, outreach, respite and short break services in Devon, please contact us.
