Understanding neurocare and rehabilitation

People living with neurological conditions and disorders require specialist support and therapies to overcome and manage their symptoms and develop or relearn abilities.

Neurological rehabilitation, or neurorehabilitation, describes the specific approach of specialist nursing care and therapies which aim to improve people's physical, cognitive, and emotional abilities.

This support focuses on functional abilities, which people should typically carry out without problems, such as moving around, talking, eating, and enjoying hobbies and activities. This approach also aims to reduce the impact of people's neurological symptoms so they can live with more independence.

Residents requiring neurocare may experience difficulties with movement, muscle weakness, balance, ability to communicate, swallowing, understanding, cognition, and pain. People living with cognitive challenges from a neurological illness or disability may experience issues remembering tasks, learning new things, making decisions about their lives and concentrating. Behavioural challenges might include restlessness, mood swings, and aggression towards loved ones and care teams.

Neurocare and neurorehabilitation is carried out with the collaboration and close working of a team of professionals from healthcare disciplines, including specialist nursing, physiotherapy, occupational therapy, speech therapy, psychiatry, and psychology. 

Working towards positive outcomes

At Hamberley Neurocare, we focus on enabling residents to live with as much independence as possible by reducing the impact of these symptoms. This is achieved through a combination of specialist nursing care, therapeutic interventions, lifestyle adaptations and support so residents with these neurological difficulties can live a full and happy life.

We take the time to understand our residents – their likes and dislikes, hobbies and interests, abilities, and wishes – to develop the goals and the outcomes people wish to work towards during neurorehabilitation. From learning to walk with mobility aids, managing stairs and transferring from chair to bed, to preparing a meal or a cup of tea or enjoying a much-loved hobby, goals are unique to each person. For people with progressive conditions, a goal might simply be to live with dignity and choices. Our specialist therapy teams work with residents to enable them to reach their personal goals.

Specialist care from healthcare experts

At Hamberley Neurocare, our specialist teams of in-house Registered General Nurses, Mental Health nurses, carers, physiotherapists and occupational therapists are supported by expert independent neurological specialists as required by each resident. 


Physiotherapists focus on improving people's mobility and physical functions, working to improve their abilities and overall quality of life. They focus on strengthening muscles, improving posture, increasing mobility, coordination and balance, and reducing spasms, stiffness and pain.

Occupational Therapy

Occupational therapists assess a resident's ability to carry out everyday living activities. Then, they support people to find new ways of compensating for difficulties they may be experiencing. This might include adaptations to their environment or by creating new approaches to everyday tasks. The aim is to increase people's abilities and independence.

Speech & Language Therapy

These therapists focus on language and communication disorders, as well as swallowing. Swallowing difficulties, sometimes known as dysphagia, are common for people living with neurological disorders, and speech and language therapists work with residents to develop adaptations and dietary approaches and help people with other ways to communicate if speech is difficult.

Mental healthcare 

Psychologists and psychiatrists support residents with their emotional and mental health. For many people, adapting to life with a neurological disability can cause significant feelings of anxiety and depression. Neurocare and neurorehabilitation focus not only on physical recovery but also on emotional support to come to terms with a different way of life.



How do I arrange care for myself or a family member or friend?

To arrange a meeting to discuss your care and visit your chosen Hamberley Care Home, contact our Regional Community Relations Lead by completing an enquiry form on our website, by emailing or by calling the home directly. You can also pop in to our homes to pick up a brochure and arrange a meeting at your convenience. 

When we receive your initial enquiry via email or phone, we will be in touch within 24 hours to progress your enquiry. 


Do you provide nursing care?

Every Hamberley Care Home can support people with nursing needs 24 hours a day, seven days a week.

Hamberley nurses are experienced in caring for older people with complex health conditions. Taking a proactive approach to care for each individual reduces the risk of complications that may come with ageing, such as frailty and fall risk and failing eyesight and hearing.

Our nurses include those who specialise in a range of long-term complex care conditions, including dementia, rehabilitation following a stroke or neurological injury, and physical disabilities. At some of our homes, we provide specialist neurocare and neurorehabilitation for individuals following brain and spinal injuries.


Do you provide care for people with dementia?

Yes. At Hamberley Care Homes, our number one priority for residents living with dementia is to welcome, support and embrace their ever-changing needs.

Dementia can be extremely challenging, as well as unique to every person living with it. There will always be times where the symptoms of dementia can feel overwhelming and terrifying – thankfully, our Homemakers are trained to combat this, and having built up a credible and significant relationship with residents, they will be best suited to handle any situation.

We regularly organise activities and events with people from the local community, which means our residents can remain an important part of the world outside of their home. There are many clubs and workshops available for people living with dementia – for example, our Dementia-Friendly Cinema Club.

Our nurses include those who specialise in dementia and our homes include quiet, peaceful rooms around our care homes, built for relaxation. These areas are guaranteed to obtain minimal unwelcome stimuli so residents living with dementia can remain safe and undisturbed during their tranquil moments.

Do you provide respite care or short breaks?

Yes. Respite care or short breaks with Hamberley give people the opportunity to recover from an illness or operation or enjoy a holiday away from home with full support from our Homemakers, Nurses and Wellbeing colleagues.

During a short break with us, guests benefit from the following:

  • Accommodation in our spacious and beautiful en-suite rooms
  • Restaurant-style dining
  • Access to all of the facilities available within our luxury care homes
  • A personalised wellbeing programme
  • Blood pressure, weight and BMI checks
