Team Brain Injury Support have been supporting children and adults with an acquired brain injury, and delivering care for those with a neurological condition, since 2005.
We are proud to say we have supported individuals for as long as we have been providing specialist brain injury and complex care support in the community. We also have staff that have been with us since Team Brain Injury Support was established. For us, this shows we are succeeding when it comes to delivering a quality service to those we support and taking care of our staff members.
Sarah has worked within the Health & Social Care sector for over 18 years, the vast majority of which has been spent providing clinical and support services to help individuals with complex care needs live independently in their own homes.
“I love the huge satisfaction (and overcoming the challenges!) that delivering great care provides. Our clients are the most important consideration, and meeting their differing needs and requirements means that there is never a dull, nor repetitive day in health care. I consider it a privilege to support people and to facilitate their choices, however small, enabling them to live the life that they want to live.”
Sarah considers herself very fortunate to have always worked with a great team of people, whose primary objective is to ensure individuals remain safe and supported. Watching people progress in their rehabilitation through the right support and enabling an individual to participate in an activity which they never thought possible are two of the main reasons why Sarah continues to work within the sector.
Kelly has been a part of the Team family for the past 15 years and admits it’s been quite a journey! Joining as a Recruitment Consultant in 2007, Kelly’s career with Team has seen her work within several roles, including Care Coordinator, Area Manager, Branch Manager and Operations Manager before being appointed to her current role of Implementation & Relationship Manager in June 2022. Asked why she has chosen to stay with Team for over 15 years, Kelly told us that she is driven by her devotion to the support staff, nurses and the people Team look after, as well as their families.
“I view us as a family centred organisation, and we aim to support our individuals with as much care and empathy as we do for our own family and friends. There are lots of staff members who have remained with me throughout my journey at Team and they are honestly the most incredibly hard-working people you will ever meet! Although we don’t claim to be perfect, Team strives to deliver high standards of care and support for all.”
Kelly’s motto is “Treat people how you want to be treated” and has found this to stand her in good stead during her years at Team.
