Community Rehabilitation:

At Stavian we provide the most up to date approach to Case Management in terms of our service model, clinical framework and training programmes. Stavian provides commissioned packages of community based rehabilitation for people with head injuries. We employ, train and supervise our own teams of Personal Assistants when they are required.


Our knowledge and expertise provides a unique range of skills. We deliver services based on an innovative philosophy and an established record of success in public and private sector services. Our niche is providing support for people who experience cognitive and behavioural difficulties as a result of their head injury.


We use Positive Behavioural Intervention and Support (PBIS), Life-Coaching and an active rehabilitation approach to support people with head injuries to live their lives in meaningful ways, dependent upon the issues they experience. We use a lifelong community rehabilitation process that focuses on independence and self-determination.


We aim to reduce disability by addressing the under-developed abilities, restrictions and disadvantages, which can arise from a head injury. Many problems, including cognitive problems, cannot readily be ‘fixed’. By shifting the focus from ‘treatment’ and ‘fixing’ to creating capable environments, we can support people with head injuries to lead a full and meaningful lives.  


Designing and sustaining this capable environment is less about the physical environment and more about the way we work with people who are disabled.

We provide community based rehabilitation to support individuals in their own home under the supervision of an interdisciplinary management team.  In this way, more intensive specialist support is provided at times when it is most needed and the delicate and complex considerations of capacity, risk, duty of care and quality of life are actively shared by the whole team to create a capable environment. Support staff have continued access to the specialist knowledge and skill of experienced clinicians:

  • Case Manager

  • Life Coach

  • Neuropsychiatry

  • Neuropsychology

  • Speech and Language Therapy

  • Occupational Therapy


As far as possible, our support strategies are not based around ‘problem formulation’ or ‘risk management’, but quality of life gains agreed with each person about how they wish to live their lives.


Capable Environements are about:

  • Optimising function

  • Maximising independence

  • Establishing social roles

  • Enjoying a full and meaningful life
