Day rehabilitation and social groups

The aim of Headway’s Day Rehabilitation Services is to maximise your ability to live as independently as possible. Our services help you work towards your own goals and reach your maximum potential in day-to-day life.

What are the aims of the programme?

The Day Rehabilitation Services Programme aims to bring together people, like yourself, to participate in a programme of activities, tailored to your needs. We offer a range of cognitive, social, educational, creative and rehabilitative activities in a supportive environment. 

The specific aims of the programme are to:

  • Improve your quality of life and enable you to live life to its fullest
  • To assist you to build on your existing skills and enable you to maximise your abilities
  • Support you in developing new skills to enhance your life at home or in the community
  • Increase your self-esteem and promote self-awareness in a relaxed and enjoyable atmosphere.  

Programme Structure and Content

The programme has two aspects: Group Work and Individual Client Work.

Group Work

Group work in Day Rehabilitation Services involves a creative and rehabilitative approach. This enables you to reach your full potential in areas of physical, cognitive, behavioural, emotional and social development. You can take part in anything from peer support groups and social groups to physical activity or rehabilitative sports, community activities or creative arts such as craft making or painting. 

Individual Client Work

Each person in Day Rehabilitation Services has a Key worker. The Key Worker’s role is to support you to identify your strengths, challenges and goals. Then, together, you develop a Person-Centred-Plan that suits you.
