Acquired Brain Injuries Tools
Our person-centred ABI approach, enables us to work with individuals at a pace that feels comfortable with them. We place the individual at the centre of our support and organise activities and goals together with the individual, so they always know what is happening.
Our skilled and highly trained support teams use a range of ABI tools including:
BIIES – Brain Injury Independence and Emotional Scale, which measures independent living skills and emotional disposition.
SASNOS – The St. Andrews-Swansea Neurobehavioural Outcome Scale (SASNOS) looks at some of the difficulties that people with acquired brain injury may experience. It measures social interaction, relationships, engagement, cognition, and inhibition. A graph and profile chart is produced and the assessment is repeated prior to each review so outcomes are measured and shared.
Goal Attainment Scoring (GAS) – This takes place daily, each individual within our services is supported to identify one or two goals to focus on (more if appropriate) the goals are broken into smaller, manageable milestones. A daily record is kept to assess achievements and progress.
ABI Assessment tool – If your relative no longer requires intensive rehabilitation, but isn’t able to return home, they may be assessed as requiring long-term residential or supported living care.
The Acquired Brain Injury (ABI) assessment tool, involves a one to one meeting with the individual, family or friends. This initial assessment is used to determine what sort of support an individual needs. This helps identify how independent an individual is and what skills need improving. Knowing a history of an Acquired Brain Injury can help us provide the right support. This assessment covers areas such as:
- Living requirements
- Current Medications
- Relationships with family or friends
- Social network
- Sleep pattern
