Supporting Clients and Families


Following guidance from NHS England in response to the current pandemic of Covid-19, services have been classified according to certain criteria to enable the most critically ill people to be treated in hospital.  This has led to some clinical services offering different kinds of contact, or being temporarily suspended, such as The Oliver Zangwill Centre, to enable staff to be deployed to areas currently considered as essential.


During the period of temporary suspension of our service, the team have created a list of some of the available resources that may provide helpful information.  We hope you find this useful, and look forward to resuming normal services in due course.
Always follow advice from the UK government in the first instance and please check for updates regularly as knowledge and advice is being updated frequently.  


 

Keep in mind when using apps...

Many apps claim to help people with "brain training" without having any solid evidence base for these claims. Our stance on this is that you are welcome to use such apps, but we would caution against expecting changes in other areas of your life by using these apps.

Please try an app first before you buy it. Many apps offer extensions if you pay for them, but you could still benefit from free apps or free trial features provided by these apps.

Only install software / apps from reputable sources and rely on official providers like the GOOGLE PLAY store or the APPLE APP STORE.

General Apps for Acquired Barin Injury (ABI) / Stroke
