Calvert Reconnections to open in Spring 2021
As a result of ongoing Covid-19 restrictions, ground-breaking neuro-rehabilitation centre Calvert Reconnections will open its doors in Spring 2021.
The centre is continuing to take referrals in advance of its opening, with high levels of interest in its new service.
Calvert Reconnections, located on the outskirts of the bustling market town of Keswick in the Lake District, is a brand new neuro-rehabilitation, residential centre offering unique programmes for those who have suffered Acquired Brain Injury (ABI).
While the centre’s opening has been delayed on two occasions this year by the Covid-19 lockdowns, Calvert Reconnections’ management team is predicting a busy 2021.
“We can’t wait to open in Spring 2021,” said Centre Director, Sean Day. “2020 has been immensely difficult for everyone, but better times are on the horizon.”
Calvert Reconnections has developed the UK’s first Covid-19 compliant residential brain injury rehabilitation programme combining traditional clinical therapies with physical activity in the outdoors. Recent research by the charity found that 91% of case managers believe brain injury rehabilitation post Covid-19 is going to be more reliant on the private and charitable sectors due to stretched NHS resources, while 86% anticipate an increase in the use of outdoor activities in rehabilitation plans for brain injured patients. 89% expect the UK to face a “tidal wave” of brain injury rehabilitation need, while the majority of case managers will look to resume face-to-face rehabilitation as soon as it is safe to do so.
Added Sean Day:
“We are continuing to take referrals in advance of our opening and would like to thank the whole brain injury community for their support and understanding.”
