UK’s largest brain injury charity accredits Orchard House

Following a rigorous inspection, Headway – the brain injury association has approved Orchard House Neurological Rehabilitation Centre in Harwell as an Approved Provider.

Headway’s Approved Provider scheme ensures that outstanding facilities for people with brain injuries and neurological conditions comply with its high standards, robust on-site assessment and unannounced reviews.

Orchard House provides inpatient rehabilitation for up to nine people recovering from brain injuries, strokes and other neurological conditions.

Alex Costa, Registered Manager at Orchard House said,
“I’m extremely proud to have been approved by such a reputable organisation as Headway, who have a true understanding of what we do at Orchard House. It rewards the work that the team has put in the service and it’s an excellent incentive for my team to continue their hard work and commitment. To be recognised by such an expert and respected organisation will support our efforts to continuously find ways to improve the service we deliver so our residents can have the best service that they deserve.”

Lynne Hensor, Approved Provider Manager at Headway UK said,
“Orchard House provides slow-stream rehabilitation for service users with acquired brain injury. The service is well-led with an enthusiastic team.

“The person-centred approach offered at Orchard House, particularly the attention to detail in meeting the individual needs of service users, is impressive and will enable people to maximise their abilities and levels of independence.”

At Orchard House, patients benefit from rehabilitation carried out by a team which includes two Consultant Neurologists, therapists and rehabilitation assistants, to help individuals relearn crucial life skills and increase their independence before returning home.
