The Community Brain Injury Team is available for people with non-progressive brain injuries between the ages of 18 and 65.
The Community Brain Injury Team (CBIT) is an interdisciplinary team which provides neuro-rehabilitation for clients who have sustained a brain injury and are now living in a community setting in Medway and Swale.
We do not provide an inpatient service.
Most of our referrals are for clients who have sustained a traumatic brain injury, for example from a car accident, fall or assault.
We provide rehabilitation for adults who in this episode of care:
- are aged 18 and over
- have a single incident, non deteriorating acquired brain injury (excluding strokes and progressive brain injuries)
- require therapy from at least two or more disciplines in the team and demonstrate potential for improvement
- are living in a community setting in the Sittingbourne, Isle of Sheppey or Medway area.
We also work with people who have had encephalitis, meningitis, anoxia or other brain injuries and people in low awareness states.
We provide intervention for people who, following brain injury, are in a vegetative/low awareness state and are being cared for in the community.
The Community Brain Injury Team referral form can be requested by phoning 01634 833937.
