Harvey Road Celebrates their 1st Year of Service

Harvey Road in Bournemouth opened at the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic, but despite the challenges that has brought, has over the past 12 months offered residential specialist ABI (acquired brain injury) care and support designed to help people regain independence post injury.

The home is designed to support up to eight individuals following an acquired brain injury in its six bedrooms, all with en-suite facilities and two further apartments as a step down provision to further improve independent living skills as people progress in their intensive rehabilitation programme.

The building, furniture and fittings were all designed to help people to regain their skills and live as independently as possible. The apartments help people moving through their rehabilitation to live more independently and relearn skills which may have been lost as a result of their injury.

Over the past year the Harvey Road team have worked closely with a local rehabilitation service to provide bespoke occupational therapy, speech and language therapy, physiotherapy and other support to best meet individual’s needs.

To mark the service’s first anniversary, a special celebration was held with balloons and cakes for the people supported at Harvey Road and the staff team.

Manager Martina Goble said: “When we opened Harvey Road we could never have anticipated that we would have faced such challenges as a result of COVID-19. However, the staff team here have been amazing and have really gone above and beyond to support people positively, to stay in touch with their families when opportunities for visits in person were limited and to continue to do the things they enjoy.

“It’s been wonderful to celebrate our first anniversary and we look forward to having a proper party with loved ones and other special guests as soon as we can.”
