Fell walking and goal-driven ABI rehabilitation



In Calvert Reconnections’ latest video, rehab coaches, clinicians and participants talk about the multi-faceted benefits of fell walking as part of a goal-driven ABI rehabilitation programme.

Calvert Reconnections is a neuro-rehabilitation centre for people with ABI.

Based in a specially-adapted residential centre on the outskirts of Keswick in the Lake District, Reconnections’ personalised rehabilitation plans address a range of areas including physical rehabilitation, mental wellbeing, cognitive rehabilitation and communication; all with the aim of maximising function.

The centre prides itself on expanding the horizons of what’s possible with brain injury rehabilitation and is generating widespread interest and referrals.

“At Calvert Reconnections we are constantly striving to expand the horizons of what is possible with brain injury rehabilitation,” says Claire Appleton, Head of Service at Calvert Reconnections.

“People with ABI can sometimes find the set procedures of neuro-rehabilitation too clinical, inflexible and impersonal.

“Our expert clinical therapy team combines cognitive and physical rehabilitation with vocational and outdoor activities delivered within a unique non-clinical environment.

“Our use of outdoor activities differentiates our service from other rehab providers but so too does the depth of expertise within our clinical team.”
