The Marbrook Neurological Rehabilitation Centre which opened in May 2016 has been recognised for its monthly Carers Café. The last Tuesday of every month the doors to ‘Café Neuro’ are opened, where carers are greeted by the smell of fresh coffee and pastries. The cafe is the result of a collaborative group of local charities working together to offer carers advice and practical support and hosted by Marbrook for free.
‘For us being a Carer friendly employer is just about doing the right thing. If you could share good practice, brake carer’s isolation and support key local third sector and NHS partners, wouldn’t you?’ Robert Myers – Head of Care Pathways
The Marbrook Centre is a bespoke 9 million 81 bed Neuro Rehabilitation Centre on the Cambridgeshire, Bedfordshire and Hertfordshire boarders.
With its own clinical MDT, (including Neuro Physiotherapy , Occupational Therapy, Speech and Language Therapy, Psychology and Addenbrookes consultant cover), they offer fast and slow stream outcome focused rehab packages for those living post a life changing incident such as ABI, Spinal Cord Injury or Stroke and long term neurological conditions such as MND.
They also have a specialist a-typical dementia service within its own area of the Centre (using Stirling University’s dementia friendly design best practice) which cares for those living with Early Onset Dementia or those who have ‘challenged’ other less specialist services and conditions such as Korsakoff Syndrome
