The Vines Neuro-Rehabilitation Centre

About The Vines

The Vines provides leading person-centred neuro-rehabilitation programmes for 18 male and female adults who have had an acquired brain injury, traumatic brain injury or any neurological conditions.

As a step down service, we o­ffer support for individuals who have had their initial rehabilitation in hospitals or from one of our other Craegmoor services. Our aim is to promote independence and help each resident back into the community.

Our approach to support:

The Vines is an outcome based service, we work within the UK ROC based guidelines to ensure we provide evidence based care. With support from a psychologist, occupational therapist and physiotherapists, the team at The Vines consists of:

  • Clinical psychiatrist
  • Neuro-psychologist
  • Support staff

All of our staff have mandatory and online training, as well as having or working towards an NVQ level three in health and social care. We also have external relationships with a variety of providers including GPs, chiropodists and aromatherapists.

What it’s like to live here:

We have a daily activities programme based on individual interests and abilities. Our residents decide what they want to do based on their person-centred plan, as well as through the discovery of further hobbies and activities. This includes access to music therapy and also Headway which has a wide range of facilities including a:

  • Gymnasium
  • Arts and crafts room
  • Games centre

Independence skills

At The Vines, our expert team’s aim is to empower individuals to take control of their lives and where possible, work towards a level of independence which fits with their confidence and aspirations. The skills we help to develop using step-by-step programmes include:

  • Cooking
  • Gardening
  • Food shopping
  • Personal hygiene

We also take our residents out into the community to further develop their social skills.


The Vines offers 18 single bedrooms and well equipped bathrooms. There is a communal lounge where individuals can socialise and a dining room where meals can be enjoyed together. A second ‘quiet’ lounge features a computer with internet access and a recreation room which features facilities for art, crafts and games.

There is also a kitchen for use by the people we support, whilst the ‘family room’ provides overnight stay facilities for relatives. The service also has a fully enclosed, large garden which offers a tranquil environment and is well used during the warmer months.
