The Child Brain Injury Rehabilitation Service is the culmination of two established brands working together in a joint venture to establish the first case management company that only works with children with brain injury and their families.
The Child Brain Injury Trust and Bush & Company have been working together throughout 2017 to develop a unique service which utilises the skills, knowledge and experience of both organisations to demonstrate excellence in practice and deliver an enhanced service to children with brain injury and their families.
The Child Brain Injury Rehabilitation Service was established in January 2018 and is delivered via Bush & Company trading as the Child Brain Injury Rehabilitation Service.
What is a Case Manager?
Within the Child Brain Injury Rehabilitation Service context, a Case Manager is a qualified professional who assesses, plans, implements, monitors and evaluates rehabilitation, care and support services for a child following brain injury. They work in a client centred way agreeing SMART goals with those involved and use creativity, initiative and problem solving skills to meet a client’s individual needs. Services are commissioned from the statutory, voluntary and private sectors and the case manager via holistic assessment and recommendation will be involved in organising services to meet health, social, educational and environmental needs. The role is varied, challenging and very rewarding.
For those clients actively involved in litigation the case manager will be working with the legal team and the insurers involved as well as a wide range of service providers. A case manager can work with a client and their family until all goals are met and/or funding ceases and for some this involvement is life long and will involve transition arrangements to adulthood, independent living and beyond.
