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 Recruitment

ACCTA2Prama is improving the career opportunities available to its staff to allow us to optimise the benefits our employees receive from the company. We are being proactive in our endeavours to ensure staff not only enjoy their role, but are also able to progress on to bigger and better things should they wish to. 

Many health care companies do not necessarily place an emphasis on this aspect of the business but Prama is looking to manifest its caring ethos for our many patients in the way we treat our workforce.

Living Wage From 1st October 2015

Care work is sometimes viewed as being a low paid occupation and this is one of the many reasons for why there is a shortage of staff in the industry. To help improve the situation, Prama will be paying all of our staff the living wage, effective from the 1st October.

The increase in pay will ensure all members of staff will be able to afford a good standard of living which will naturally boost morale and job satisfaction in general. In addition, staff turnover is likely to decrease as a result and this will benefit our patients as there will be an increase in the availability of care workers.

Furthermore, we will be offering the best mileage rates as well as award winning training courses in order to further assist our staff in developing their career.

For new starters, our courses will incorporate the new obligatory Care Certificate to ensure all new workers are qualified and this is something which existing staff can volunteer to achieve if they would like to.

Workforce Development Programme

Our Workforce Development Programme will be seeing continued improvements and this will allow all members of staff the chance to explore different opportunities to take their career to the next level.

We are planning to implement a three-tiered care package consisting of domestic, personal and nursing care to provide customers with a multi-faceted service that can be tailored to their needs by allowing them to choose any combination of the three.

Given the new training and care package approach we will be adopting, we will now be able to offer a flexible and dynamic service to our clients by allocating Care Support Workers based on the areas they are trained in, which will have positive repercussions both for our staff and for the customers themselves.
