Brighton Brain Injury Services (BBIS)
The Brighton Brain Injury Service (formerly Jacana Acquired Brain Injury) provides complex and comprehensive rehabilitation for clients with an acquired brain injury (ABI). BBIS accepts referral of clients with acquired brain injury from across Queensland acute hospitals.
We work with the client and their families to establish realistic and achievable rehabilitation goals. The goal-setting process includes client and family education about the rehabilitation process and expectations of the program.
As well as meals and accommodation, clients can also access the following services:
- music therapy
- occupational therapy
- rehabilitation medicine
- social work
- speech pathology.
We also have visiting services, including:
- prosthetics and orthotics.
How to access services
We accept referral from health professionals from across Queensland. Carers may refer, but it is suggested to contact a health professional to assist the referral process. Please complete in the Brighton Brain Injury Service referral form and email to BrightonBrainInjuryService@health.qld.gov.au
There is a fee which includes accommodation, meals, laundry and medications.
Visiting hours for this facility have changed. Visitors are welcome between Noon to 6 pm daily.
Where visitors are not able to visit within these times please contact the Nurse Unit Manager or Case Manager of the area. Children are welcome to visit as long as they are in the care of a responsible adult. Visitors are asked to consider the needs of other patients in the room and common areas of the facility.
There may be times when visitors are asked to leave, so that treatment or care can be provided.
We appreciate everyone’s co-operation and understanding.
