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 support Poole Full of Life Celebrations

Older people who are ‘full of life’ and show their commitment to Poole through the time they donate to a variety of services, including lunch clubs, charities and community groups have come together to enjoy an afternoon celebration with the Mayor on Thursday 29th September.

Supported by Prama as one of the organisers, the Poole Full of Life Day Celebration took place bringing together older people from across the town who live life to the full and contribute towards community life.  Attended by over 70 invited guests, nominated by the public and community groups, and hosted by the Mayor of Poole, Cllr Xena Dion, the day links Poole to the International Day of Older People.

The Full of Life Celebration afternoon tea took place in the Spire Community Hall on Poole High Street and was funded by a grant from the Big Lottery Celebrate England Fund that brings together local communities to boost community spirit. Entertainment for the guests was provided by local singer Karl Stokes of Real Vintage.

Cllr Xena Dion, Mayor of Poole, said: “It is wonderful to see so many people giving up their valuable time to the services of Poole. These are people who volunteer, and help others in their community and we cannot thank them enough for all that they do. They are a vital element of our community and while we organise an event every year in Poole for Full of Life day, this year, we wanted to have a celebration. We’re grateful to the Big Lottery Celebrate England and the local groups that made this happen.”

The Poole Full of Life Day is organised by a collaborative of local voluntary and statutory organisations interested in the welfare of older people; Prama, Borough of Poole, Poole Housing Partnership, Poole Day Centre, Poole Wellbeing Collaborative, Faithworks Wessex, Poole Chaplaincy and Poole Waste Not, Want Not.  The stories and experiences of older people invited to attend the celebration event are being captured for prosperity and will be shared in Poole Libraries.
