Industry-leading brain injury treatment and long-term neurological care.

Set in Kent within the 12 acre grounds of a manor house, Hothfield Brain Injury Rehabilitation Centre specialises in intensive rehabilitation for people in the early stages of recovery from a brain injury right through to residential care. We care for adults over the age of 18. Our team are also experienced in managing associated needs, such as specialist spasticity management, PEG feeds and skin integrity problems.

Our on-site multi-disciplinary team (MDT) includes nursing, physiotherapy, speech and language therapy, occupational therapy, clinical psychology and rehabilitation assistants. The team is further supported by weekly sessional visits from a consultant in rehabilitation medicine.

Our clinical team is further supported by a centre manager, an activity co-ordinator and a team of housekeeping, catering, maintenance and administration staff.

Our MDT work together to ensure every team member is working towards the same practical, realistic goals and all therapies are focused on the areas that will enable patients to achieve those clearly defined and agreed goals.

Neurorehabilitation unit

The setting for our neurorehabilitation service is a purpose-built unit.  We offer active, short-term rehabilitation for people who have significant speech, functional or cognitive needs. Individuals each have personal rehabilitation goals and we work to a structured therapy programme to help them relearn and practise everyday skills to give them the best chance of a return home.

Residential unit

Located in the original manor house, this service is for people who, as a result of their brain injury or neurological condition, are not able to live at home independently. While they may not have complex nursing care needs or require regular therapy, they do need round the clock support to manage everyday tasks, to keep safe and to have a good quality of life.

Conditions we support, but are not limited to:

  • acquired brain injury
  • anoxic brain injury
  • brain tumour
  • epilepsy
  • Guillain-Barré syndrome
  • infection e.g. meningitis
  • multiple sclerosis
  • spinal injury
  • subarachnoid haemorrhage
  • traumatic brain injury
