N-ROL is a telerehabilitation initiative with UCLH Queen Square

During the COVID-19 pandemic, people with stroke and other forms of brain injury can be discharged home early from hospital and get less treatment.

In partnership with University College London (UCL), SameYou created a new service called N-ROL to bring rehabilitation virtually into patients homes. This integrated multi-disciplinary rehabilitation programme is tailored to each patient and includes physical, communication and cognitive therapies delivered to groups of up to 10 people at a time.

We are currently raising funds for other N-ROL pilot programmes and are already working closely with UCL, University of Central Lancashire (UCLan) and East Lancashire Hospitals NHS Trust.

When you leave hospital, make sure recovery comes home with you.

When you leave hospital, it can feel like you are ‘falling off a cliff’. We are partnering with our wide community of clinicians and therapists to give you access to information that would not be readily available, and provide reassurance on your journey to recovery and finding your SameYou. 

Positive Minds: Executive function

Executive functions are complex and inter-related – and include problem-solving and regulating emotions. Professor Jon Evans talks about the impact brain damage can have on them and the challenges that can bring to everyday life.

 

Positive Minds: Memory

We have many different memory systems. Professor Jon Evans explains how brain injury can affect one or more of those systems – most frequently prospective memory, like remembering to pay a bill or post a card.

Positive Minds: Language

Communication works in two directions – understanding what someone is saying and expressing yourself. Professor Jon Evans explains how brain injury can impact this crucial system.
