1 Goole Neuro-Rehabilitation Centre A guide for you and your family
2 Who comes to GNRC? All our Service Users are people aged between 18 and 65 who have an acquired brain injury or other neurological condition. Coming to GNRC gives them access to a specialist clinical service at an early stage in the rehabilitation process. How long do people stay at GNRC? The length of stay depends on the individual person. Some people only need a short-term assessment which lasts for a few weeks; others benefit from assessment followed by a longer period of rehabilitation.
3 What facilities are available? GNRC is situated within Goole Hospital which means that people have easy access to hospital services. However, it operates independently of the NHS. It has ground floor access and dedicated entrance. There are 14 beds, a lounge, dining area, training kitchen and accommodation for other therapeutic and recreational activities.
4 Who will be providing my rehabilitation programme? GNRC is staffed by a dedicated multi-disciplinary rehabilitation team, headed by a Lead Neuropsychologist and Consultants in Rehabilitation Medicine with support from a Staff Grade Doctor. Other members of the rehabilitation team include physiotherapists, occupational therapists, a clinical psychologist, speech and language therapist, dietician, nurses and a number of rehabilitation support workers.
5 What does rehabilitation involve? Everyone has an individual care and rehabilitation plan which includes practising daily living skills and structured learning programmes. This is planned into a timetable of therapy and treatment throughout the day. The rehabilitation team makes sure everyone is aware of their timetables, and that there are enough rest periods built in.
6 Family and friends - support and involvement The rehabilitation team know that it is very important to involve family and friends in the rehabilitation programme, and understand the impact that visiting has on everyday life. To support this and make sure the therapeutic programmes are met visiting times are agreed on an individual basis to meet everyone s needs. Family and friends have plenty of opportunities to discuss anything they are unsure about concerning the rehabilitation programme, individual progress, or any other concerns they may have. Educational information on injury and diagnosis and local resources (eg support groups) are provided.
7 How is progress monitored? The rehabilitation team continually monitor rehabilitation and review goals. It also coordinates review meetings which involve Service Users and their families, members of the rehabilitation team, and other professionals who are involved with the current programme or who may be involved on discharge. All Service Users have a Key Worker who can represent their views to the Rehabilitation Team. Continually improving our service GNRC welcomes comments and suggestions about how the service could be improved. All members of staff are happy to pass comments or suggestions on to the Service Manager.

9 What happens after GNRC? Most people move back into the community when they leave GNRC. Some move to their family home, sometimes with extra support from community support workers. Others move to a supported house or a residential care home, depending on their needs. GNRC provides information and support to Service Users and their families to help them make decisions about when they leave GNRC and their future life plans.
