In 2016 Prama was privileged to begin delivering Brain Injury Care Services for people in Dorset with an acquired brain injury.

We are an experienced charity known for providing outstanding domiciliary care, with a commitment to help older people, vulnerable adults and now people with acquired brain injury, to live independently with the high-quality care and support they deserve.

Prama has built a reputation for home care on a solid foundation of Christian values, though is not an exclusively religious organisation; our clients and staff come from a range of faiths, or no faith. It is the core Christian values of love and care underpinning our services that has enabled us to develop the reputation we are proud to have.

The Brain Injury Service sits within the PramaCARE part of the Prama Foundation, benefitting from the recognised exemplary processes and procedures that have underpinned our domiciliary care for many years.

In the Brain Injury Service our work is as varied as our clients’ needs, and does not focus solely on providing care in the home.

Whilst we do support some of our clients with tasks and activities at home, we also help people access: 

  • education

  • training 

  • community based social and developmental activities

We also provide respite sits to enable family members and carers to have a break or engage themselves in social activities. Our work is built around supporting people with their rehabilitation to reduce isolation and enable people to retain a level of independence.

We have a small and dedicated team of fully trained staff, which is growing all the time. As we progress through 2018, we are working to reach out more widely across the country and provide more care and support to those who need it.  

We are growing our networks and meeting new clients all the time. Our aim is to become the Service provider of choice within the County for professionals, individuals, families and carers alike. We are developing a front facing approach, giving professionals, clients and family members security in the high quality of service that is provided.

If you would like to know more about our service, or if you like to speak with someone about what assistance we can offer, please give us a call on 01202 207320.

Our role in rehabilitation is to give our clients their very best chance at making improvements through engaging in different community based activities or approaches. We aim to enable our clients to retain as much independence as possible, including working on skills and aspects of their lives they may be struggling with. The support we provide for family members and carers is essential for their wellbeing, providing space to be themselves and retain their own identity and independence.”

Diane Evans - Brain Injury Service Manager

“My own recovery from a brain injury has been helped immensely as I have integrated back into work slowly through helping others who have suffered similar or worse injuries than I have.” Rehabilitation Support Worker

I received brain injury education in addition to other training, and achieved my NVQ 2 in Health and Social care. I enjoyed learning about brain injury and how it affects an individual and their families, and I have gained vital experience working with individuals who were living with brain injury.” Rehabilitation Support Worker

“Prama provide the best carers I’ve had”

Development Workers

AboutPramaCTA1In addition to the primary care services that Prama provide, we also fund Development Workers to research and develop new ideas for our operations. The DW’s will explore new ideas and initiatives that Prama can pursue in order to provide our customers with the best services possible.

Whilst we provide funding for certain periods of time, the Development Workers are looking for ventures that can ultimately become sustainable in the near future in order for them to facilitate growth for Prama, both financially and experientially. Successfully achieving this will mean our customers will have more and more services to benefit from in the future and, as a result, this will allow the Prama experience will develop.

New Services

A few examples of the Development Worker’s successful projects are the introduction of social events such as coffee clubs and knitting groups that are available to the residents. These require a small entry fee which enables the groups to be self sustaining with no further funding from Prama required.

We have recently partnered with an amazing organisation called Age Concern Poole to synergise our efforts into one collaborative experience. Age Concern provides residents with a range of different opportunities including a bus system and small events called pop-ins. These pop-ins do not require any membership fees and they allow residents to partake in activities such as parties, bingo and lunches.

PramaBan2In addition, Prama helped establish a service called FACE (Family and Community Enrichment) which can be found in Immanuel Church, Southbourne. FACE hold meetings for carers and people experiencing bereavement as well as sessions where speakers can give advice to those in need.

Our collaboration with Development Workers is an on going process and shows how Prama are continually looking for ways to improve the quality of our customers experience and grow the business at the same time.
