14-week Cognitive Reablement Programme
The first 5 weeks looks at confidence building exploring individual areas of strength and challenges. You will be shown how to build steps to cope with challenging situations, recognise stress, learn how to relax and how this can be used to combat stress. Individuals will learn personalised techniques to cope with stress, knowing how to change and looking at barriers to change.
Following on from this the individual will then gain insight into the effects of brain injury in their behaviour, identifying personal deficits and gaps to enable them to identify changes and learn techniques to bridge those gaps and address deficits.
We also offer Fatigue, Behavioural, and Memory Management Modules.
