Description of the Neurological Rehabilitation service:
Halton Community Neurorehabilitation Service is a community based team of highly specialised health professionals with the knowledge and skills to provide assessment, and rehabilitation for people with neurological conditions and their families.
This can include Acquired Brain Injuries, Stroke, MS, Parkinson’s disease and other neurological conditions.
The core team consists of Neuropsychology, Occupational Therapy and Physiotherapy.
We work in a multidisciplinary way, which means that the team meet up regularly and liaise with other agencies involved to make sure that we are working towards a shared therapeutic goal.
The focus of the service is to improve the quality of life for people living with the effects of long term neurological conditions, by supporting them to achieve their optimal cognitive, physical, behavioural, and emotional levels of functioning with the goal of maximizing their re-integration into the community.
