One of the aims of rehabilitation is to assist the person who sustained a head injury in leading a normal life as possible in their individual circumstances. One way this is achieved is with the help of support workers.

A support worker is an individual who looks after and supports a person who cannot fully manage by themselves, enabling them to achieve maximum independence. This would normally be a trained person who is paid rather than a family member or friend.

The type of support provided may include assistance with personal hygiene, dressing, preparing meals, cleaning, laundry and assistance with paying bills. A support worker can also assist a person with recreational activities and provide assistance in the workplace. Part of the support workers role may also be to provide reminders to the individual about tasks they can do for themselves.

Regardless of whether the support worker is employed through the NHS or from a private source this role is vital to the on-going rehabilitation of someone who has suffered a head injury. As your head injury lawyers we will make sure that you are provided with a support worker who will meet your needs.
