Independent Provider Of Specialist Neurological Rehabilitation Services

Hobbs Rehabilitation at Oaksey House

Hobbs provides specialist inpatient neurological rehabilitation at Oaksey House near Newbury, the flagship rehabilitation centre of the Injured Jockeys Fund. Download our leaflet here.

A large number of those we treat are young with a spinal cord injury and include sports men and women from the equestrian and RFU (rugby) world, although Oaksey House is not exclusively for young sports people.

At Oaksey House, we provide personalised treatment for those with neurological conditions. The inpatient rehabilitation services aim to assess all the different aspects of an individual's care and rehabilitation needs, which will be continually updated throughout their stay. As well as the co-ordination of the rehabilitation programme, we work closely with the individual, family and carers to address long-term goals to allow individuals to continue their progress and ensure a smooth transition to the home environment.

The state of the art building with its many eco friendly features has purpose built gyms, clinic rooms, meeting and function rooms and the light, airy communal areas make this an ideal environment in which to work and stay.  

Across the garden, well appointed independent living apartments, some suitable for higher dependency clients and their carers, are available for those requiring intensive rehabilitation who want to stay at Oaksey House and gain maximum benefit from the facilities it offers.  If you have an established care team you are welcome to bring them.  If not, care can be sourced locally.

ā€œ Hobbs Rehabilitation's link with the Rugby Football Union's Injured Players Foundation saw me referred to Helen Hobbs and her team after 5 months in hospital after my spinal cord injury. I count myself extremely lucky to be able to work with Helen and her fantastic team of neurological physiotherapists who are all professional, dedicated and passionate about their patients. The treatment I have received has been absolutely magnificent and I most definitely would not be in the position I am today and continuing to improve had I not had further physiotherapy with Hobbs Rehabilitation. The approach is always pragmatic and clear and you can be sure that they will challenge you to improve in each and every session. I am totally blown away by the effort and positive mindset of the team at Hobbs and despite my spinal cord injury leading to certain limitations in my physical ability I am always made to work hard to strive to recover as much as possible. Hobbs Rehabilitation has really made a substantial, positive difference to my recovery, I wouldn't hesitate whatsoever to recommend them to anybody. Simply fantastic!
