Agricola House provides support to eight adults with a head or acquired brain injury. We are pleased to have been granted Headway Approved Provider status.
We support individuals who would benefit from increasing their independence in a supportive community setting. We adopt a person centred approach, aiming to support people to regain their social, cognitive and independence skills, and to develop their confidence.
Speech and language therapy, Neuro-physiotherapy and Neuro-psychology input is available as required. Programmes will be carefully designed and integrated into each service user’s daily routine. Support will be based on rehabilitation techniques which strive to increase independence, and progress will be monitored closely using Goal Attainment Scaling.
Bury is easily accessible and has a wide range of community resources, from leisure and recreational activities to educational facilities.

We encourage people to take an active and involved role in the household and the community.
