About Northern Brain Injury Rehabilitation Service (NBIRS)

"When a person has a severe brain injury from a motor vehicle accident or work injury it can change how you do everyday tasks, think, and behave. NBIRS case management and rehabilitation helps in your recovery and assists you to understand and plan how to reach your goals. Everyone is different so you will be at the centre of the decision making and planning. Your family and friends can be a part of your team. The NBIRS case manager will work with you to involve therapists and services that you and your family may need as part of your rehabilitation and as you decide what things are important for you to work on and achieve.

Our team is specially trained to support people with brain injuries. We work with adults (aged 16 to 65) that live in the northern New South Wales area.

We have a number of case managers approved by Lifetime Care. We can also link you up with other service providers in the area. There are links between city and country hospitals and rehabilitation units. This makes sure that your care continues, regardless of where you live.

We are a part of the NSW Agency for Clinical Innovation network to ensure that you receive the right health care at the right time and in the right place. By working with NBIRS you will have access to all of the knowledge and support available.

We are proud to provide best practice in the area of brain injury."
