Adults’ Services and Cannon Hill House
A wide range of part-time services are available for participants wishing to attend. Typically attendance will be weekly, fortnightly or monthly according to individual needs. Following an initial consultation an appropriate service will be discussed from the group options below:
- Children with cerebral palsy aged 14yrs – 18yrs
- Adults with cerebral palsy and acquired head injury aged 18+
- People with Parkinson’s and parkinsonism
- People with multiple sclerosis and ataxia
- People who have survived a stroke
For those who have a different diagnosis to the above a suitable group or individual provision will be discussed with the participant prior to attendance. Conductors will, in this situation, seek a service which will meet all the specific needs of the individual.
In CE we strongly recognise the need to support the whole family and we are able to give specific advice, help and information to carers. This is available on a one-to-one basis or as a part of a group workshop.
We are also able to offer block group sessions through contract. These usually consist of 5 participants with the same condition attending Monday-Friday for a two week period or once a week for ten weeks. To date these have been sponsored by local branches of Parkinson’s UK however we are able to discuss similar options with other groups. These services are based at our centre in Birmingham.
The above range of services are on offer at the main centre in Birmingham (NICE), however condition specific groups are also available in Coventry (for stroke and Parkinson’s) and in Cheltenham (for Parkinson’s and MS). All of these services are staffed by conductors from Cannon Hill House.
