BASIC is a not for profit organisation which exists to serve people recovering from acquired brain injury and spinal injury and their families. The charity specialises in centre-based services for people who have undergone treatment for a traumatic head injury, brain haemorrhage, brain tumour, stroke or similar conditions. Their services also help people manage long-term neurological conditions.
Two of our solicitors’, James and Emma, had the privilege of being shown around BASIC’s facility in Salford and to witness the cutting-edge technology in the form of Computer Assisted Rehabilitation Environment (CAREN).
BASIC is very fortunate to be able to offer their patients this revolutionary technology to assist with their recovery. This is the only treatment of its kind available to patients in the United Kingdom and it is not currently available in any NHS settings.

Dementia is caused by a number of diseases that affect the brain. The most common is Alzheimer’s but also include vascular dementia, dementia with Lewy bodies and Pick’s disease. It is true that more people over 65 have dementia but it is not exclusively an older person’s disease; younger people get dementia too.
We were keen to learn more about dementia, being a condition, many people have in our community. With this in mind our staff have become Dementia Friends, learning about dementia so they can help their community.
