Askham Court

A purpose-built home for young adults with long-term, complex neurological conditions

Set in the stunning seven acres in Cambridgeshire, Askham Court is one of the five specialist care homes specialised in Spinal Cord Injury and Acquired Brain Injury

Askham Court is set in Cambridgeshire and is specialised in Spinal Cord Injury and in Acquired Brain Injury. Askham Court is a Level 2 Specialist Neuro Rehab Unit, purpose-built, not just as a state-ofthe-art neuro facility but as a dedicated, positive environment for adults who have complex needs but seek to maintain as much independence as possible.

All rooms are en-suite and have overhead tracking to help support the independence and mobility of our residents. Private access to all rooms promotes a sense of independence which is essential for adults during a rehabilitation period. Featuring extra-wide doorways and large open spaces throughout, the building is designed with your needs in mind.

Because your comfort and happiness is our priority, day visits and short stays are welcomed to help decide if Askham Court is the place for you or your loved one. We support those with highly complex physical disability needs, and/or complex cognitive and behavioural needs, all of our residents have access to our on-site multi-disciplinary team.

They offer a range of therapies including Physiotherapy, Occupational Therapy, Speech and Language Therapy, Hydrotherapy and Psychology. Our specialist, experienced staff are trained to support people whose primary needs include tracheostomy/ventilation, complex spasticity, prolonged disorders of consciousness, and who require specialist medical and complex therapy interventions. In addition, patients whose primary needs are for moderately severe cognitive and behavioural management are also welcome here at Askham Court.

Askham Court was awarded the prestigious 2012 Pinders National Design Award for Buildings for Young Adults with Physical Challenges and we are Headway accredited.
