A Borehamwood business wants to raise awareness of brain injuries as part of the national Brain Injury Awareness week.

Partnerships in Care, based in Imperial Way, Borehamwood, is an independent care provider and wants to remind people what steps they can take to protect their brains from injury.

Advice includes wearing necessary safety equipment when playing sports, keeping stairs clutter-free to prevent tripping and fitting safety gates at the top and bottom of stairs if you have small children.

Professor Nick Alderman, director of clinical services at Brain Injury Services, said: “Head injuries can lead to neurobehavioural disability which has a major impact on long-term psychosocial outcome, such as quality of life, capacity for independent living, employment and relationships.

"Whilst many head injuries are the result of accidents that are difficult to predict or avoid, there are some ways to reduce your risk.

“Prevention, early screening, and most importantly the support that neuro, clinical and forensic psychologists provide improves outcomes to people with brain injury.”
