Initial Needs Assessments

Brain Injury Services Ltd can complete Initial Needs Assessments on a one-off basis or to inform the starting blocks of the case management process. Our team pride ourselves in providing comprehensive and detailed reporting for your clients.

Kathryn Howard and her team provide Initial Needs Assessments and case management reports which give a thorough, professional and concise view point of the client's current status, environment, therapy intervention needed and assessment of what care or support the client and family require. Our initial needs assessments are always accompanied by a comprehensive budget which reflects the recommendations of the case management team from the report.

Our recommendations clearly define problem areas, possible solutions, and costs, including Case Management objectives and an estimate of the hours required. This initial report gives us a clear template for the provision of regular written updates which are usually provided on a monthly or quarterly basis. Referrers are made aware of any activity that is likely to be higher in cost than originally estimated. This will be communicated to the instructed party in advance where possible. Our case managers have systems for closely monitoring their activity each month.

Initial Need reports are provided in accordance with the Rehabilitation Code of Practice.

Following the report being received, we work with the client, family and financial deputy to agree the recommendations and the associated budget, agree our terms and conditions of business and consent to service in which to implement the work agreed. From this point the case manager will be acting for the client.
