Royal Hospital for Neuro-disability
The Royal Hospital for Neuro-disability (RHN) is a national medical charity. Independent from the NHS, they work to improve the lives of adults affected by brain injury or neurological conditions through specialist long term care and rehabilitation.
Founded in 1854, the RHN provides the very best in care and assessment. They help to achieve the best possible quality of life for their patients living with neurological disability and advance the science of care through research and education.
The RHN helps people affected by disorders of consciousness, acquired or traumatic brain injury and progressive neurological conditions, such as Huntington’s disease and Multiple Sclerosis. They offer holistic care and a range of services for up to 220 people living with complex disabilities, these include neuro-rehabilitation, long-stay care and specialist nursing home services.
The RHN must fundraise £2.7million each year in order to fund a number of therapies and services including aqua therapy, assistive technology, music therapy, gardening and art sessions.
In addition, charitable funds can go towards leisure and family services for residents, bespoke wheelchairs, new beds and hoists. These services are essential to patients’ wellbeing and help them find ability through their disabilities.
It is thanks to their supporters that they are able to continue providing these services, which are life changing for their patients.
