Neurological Care

What is Neurological Care?

Neuro care focuses on the diagnosis, approach, and management of disorders involving the brain and nervous system. Collaboration between neurologists, neurosurgeons, nurses, and rehabilitation professionals is part of this multidisciplinary order. It deals with a variety of neurological disorders, such as traumatic brain injuries, epilepsy, and strokes. We offer care for these patients in conjunction with medical professionals.

Using medical interventions, rehabilitation therapies, and diagnostic techniques, neuro care aims to maximise neurological function and enhance patients’ long-term quality of life. The field is constantly changing, incorporating research and technological developments in medicine to provide a more individualised and efficient neurological approach.


What does our neurological care involve?

  • Assisting individuals diagnosed with neurological disorders such as epilepsy, Parkinson’s disease, multiple sclerosis, or amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS). These guests may require ongoing neuro care to manage symptoms, slow disease progression, and improve their overall quality of life.
  • Our team has experience with stroke survivors, who often require intensive neuro care to regain lost functions and improve overall mobility. Our team can organise physical, occupational, and speech therapy.
  • People who have experienced traumatic brain injuries or other head injuries may require neuro care to address cognitive impairments, physical limitations, and emotional challenges resulting from the injury.
  • In conjunction with medical professionals our team is skilled in assisting individuals with spinal cord injuries who may require neuro care to manage complications, rehabilitate, and learn adaptive strategies to enhance their independence and quality of life.
  • Conditions such as muscular dystrophy, myasthenia gravis, and peripheral neuropathy fall under the category of neuromuscular disorders. At Sunninghill Recovery Lodge, our skilled team can assist in managing symptoms, slowing progression, and improving functional abilities by working alongside trained medical professionals.
  • Some individuals may have genetic conditions affecting the nervous system, such as Huntington’s disease or certain types of hereditary neuropathies, requiring specialised neuro care.
  • Our team, along with medical professionals can assist with the care of patients suffering with:
  • Neurological Infections
  • Cognitive decline and dementia

Our approach

At Sunninghill Recovery Lodge, we develop a carefully crafted, individual recovery plan for each guest as we talk to you, the medical team and your family. Our team ensures that you are met with exceptional care, enabling you to heal holistically and remain comfortable during your stay.

Our objective is to connect you with the most relevant team of professionals, including specialised doctors, neuro-physiotherapists, occupational therapists, and speech therapists, needed for your holistic recovery. During your stay, we ensure we understand your unique needs and wishes, and walk your road to recovery with you from start to finish. You will come to us straight after you’re discharged from the hospital if you were hospitalised, and we will help get you settled into your room and take time to learn about your requirements to ensure that you are able to remain in control and feel at ease with your recovery process.

Once you are settled in, our experienced team will ensure your vitals are taken, treatments are scheduled, and ablution requirements are met. Most importantly, we will ensure you are treated with kindness, dignity, and compassion. We understand that real recovery is not just a physical process, and so we do our utmost to ensure that your emotional and psychological needs are also met.

When it comes to nutrition, we ensure that fluids are consumed and that our excellent meals inspire you to stay energised. Every guest always has a call button on hand to ensure that we can attend to your needs 24/7. Our main goal is to eliminate anxiousness, ensuring you never feel alone or vulnerable.

We have seen firsthand that recovery is dramatically improved when guests feel safe, loved, and in control. We have no restrictive visiting hours or schedules, so you have the freedom to decide what you need and how you want your recovery to happen.

Our approach makes use of three simple steps:

1. Create a non-clinical, beautiful, and safe environment that feels like home, but is staffed with carers attending to your needs 24/7, who also take detailed records.

2. To combine outdoor views, delicious, nutrient-dense meals, and private en-suite rooms to enhance a speedy recovery while guests heal both physically and emotionally.

3. To give control back to the guest by empowering them to make their own decisions while we communicate regularly and thoroughly with loved ones.
