Elysium Neurological is determined to deliver the highest quality neurological rehabilitation and care for our residents and to do this we need a broad spectrum of knowledge and clinical expertise to provide these complex and multifaceted treatment and care pathways. One of those leaders is Professor Nick Alderman.
Professor Alderman brings with him a wealth of knowledge and expertise in the field of neurobehavioural rehabilitation and will be developing bespoke services and pathways for Elysium Neurological. The first of which will be Gladstone House located in a customised building on the same site as Adderley Green in Stoke-on-Trent.
Professor Alderman explains: “In studies conducted over many years, challenging behaviours have been recognised as posing a greater long-term impediment to community integration after a brain injury than physical disabilities. Neurobehavioural rehabilitation attempts to alleviate social handicap arising from neurobehavioural disability.”
“I will develop high quality services to support this patient group and in doing so will provide a new patient pathway for Elysium Neurological which will complement and support the existing neurological services and broaden the expertise and knowledge within the wider organisation.”
Meanwhile Dr Jenny Brooks (Consultant Neuropsychologist) joins the team and will work alongside Shaun O’Gara (Neurobehavioural Lead Nurse) both of whom have been recruited to support the development of the neurobehavioural rehabilitation services.
