Brain injury care

Acquired brain injury (ABI) only occurs after birth and can impact the quality of life for an individual.

Whilst it can be unexpected and life-altering, a positive quality of life at home surrounded by friends and family is definitely possible.

There can be many causes of brain injury, which include:

  • Falls or accidents
  • Exposure to toxic chemicals
  • Injury to the head
  • Tumours
  • Sports injury
  • Stroke
  • Physical violence resulting in injuries to the head
  • Neurological conditions
  • Strangulation, choking or drowning
  • Drug abuse

These causes of acquired brain injury can further be categorised into two crucial areas, thus determining the level of care that may be required:

Traumatic brain injury

caused by a sudden impact to the head or struck with significant force

Non-traumatic brain injury

no physical trauma, but caused by strokes, tumours, neurological diseases, etc.
