Heathers in Birmingham is a 20 bed specialist rehabilitation service for adult males with an acquired brain injury (ABI). Our person-centred and flexible ABI rehabilitation programme aims to reduce risk, maximise independence, improve quality of life and, where possible, help those affected to recover to the best of their ability.
 
Typically, our service users will have an acquired brain injury as a result of an accident or a stroke.
