About Wendy

“I graduated as a speech pathologist in 1992 working with clients who have an acquired neurological condition in varied roles including: acute care; rehabilitation; and domiciliary services. I worked as a case manager with a national occupational rehabilitation provider in their specialist brain injury services team before joining Access Brain Injury Services in 2002.

My case management experience for the past 15 years has involved working with people with an acquired brain injury. My case management experience has given me extensive exposure to working with people with a varying severity of brain injury. I have experience working with people from early post injury (e.g. at time of discharge from rehabilitation) through to clients who may be several years post injury."

About Access Brain Injury Services

"Operating for 16 years, Access Brain Injury Services employs a team of 11 case managers. In the event that a case manager is on leave for more than 2 weeks, responsibility for a case is allocated internally to another case manager and a full handover takes place.

It is also the policy of Access Brain Injury Services to send both a case manager and a service manager to every initial interview. This procedure ensures that at least two staff members, including a service manager have met the client and their significant others.

As a result of this policy combined with the day-to-day supervision of case managers, there is always a service manager aware of the participant’s circumstances and able to act in the event a case manager requires leave."
