About Acquired Brain Injury Ireland
Approximately 13,000 people suffer from a head injury in Ireland each year and face a dramatically altered life thereafter. A brain injury affects every aspect of your life; loss of independence, friendships, sexual relationships, ability to attend college, work or socialise. The life you once knew almost vanishes to a distant memory. A brain injury can be caused by damage to the brain tissue following traumatic brain injuries resulting from road traffic accidents, alcohol induced falls /assaults, sports injuries, lack of oxygen to the brain. Damage to the brain can affect the injured both physically and behaviourally, resulting in personality change, difficulty with memory, speech, sight, mobility, concentration, even ability to organise oneself independently.
Established in 2000, Acquired Brain Injury Ireland (formerly the Peter Bradley Foundation) was set up to provide a range of pioneering, flexible and tailor-made services to people with Acquired Brain Injury (ABI). The Community based Neuro-Rehabilitation services provided by the organisation place a critical emphasis on client-centeredness, quality, effectiveness and value for money. ABI Ireland provides specialist services, enabling people with neurorehabilitation needs to lead meaningful lives in the community, by providing personalised quality rehabilitation and support.
