Brighton Brain Injury Services
The Brighton Brain Injury Service (formerly Jacana Acquired Brain Injury) provides complex and comprehensive rehabilitation for clients with an acquired brain injury (ABI). Jacana 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.
