Brain injury can challenge every aspect of your life – walking, talking, thinking and feeling – and the losses can be severe and permanent. It can mean losing both the life you once lived and the person you once were.
Headway Thames Valley works to improve life after brain injury.
It provides support, services and information to brain injury survivors, their families and carers, as well as campaigning to reduce the incidence of brain injury in the Thames Valley.
Support options we provide include art and music therapy, physiotherapy, speech and language therapy, enablement, community based activities, neuro-psychology and occupational therapy.
All activities are designed to help clients towards achieving a range of outcomes: learning or re-learning skills, improving confidence and self-esteem, functional ability and exercise, developing coping strategies, keeping families together, quality of life, being able to use public transport, taking part in community or sports activities and helping to facilitate returning to employment where appropriate.
As well as a Day Centre in Henley, various groups are run accross Berkshire and some one on one support is available.
