About Peartree House

About Us

Peartree House Neurological Rehabilitation Centre is a modern, specialist rehabilitation centre established in 1996 and based in a beautiful listed building in Southampton. The Centre embraces all the advances in understanding the needs of people who have suffered a brain injury to provide a seamless, integrated, bespoke service including inpatient neurological rehabilitation, long term nursing and complex care, inpatient rehabilitation into the community, and continuing community support.

Peartree House treats and cares for anyone from 18 years of age and over, both as inpatients and as outpatients in the community.

The people we treat have all suffered brain injuries as a result of various causes which range from road traffic accidents, falls, other traumatic incidents, stroke, or neurological disorders caused by illness or degenerative conditions. What is universal is that everybody affected by brain injury needs trained, specialised, patient and watchful therapy,treatment and care.

We can help if a client has:

  • experienced a traumatic, anoxic or acquired brain injury, including stroke
  • suffered a spinal cord injury
  • a progressive neurological condition such as Multiple Sclerosis or Parkinson’s Disease
  • a disorder of consciousness
  • other complex neurological disorders which occur alongside brain injury such as epilepsy, learning disability or mental health issues.

Accommodation at Peartree House

Accommodation at Peartree House

The main house has 31 well-appointed rooms and extensive therapy and activity facilities. Most clients admitted to Peartree House will live in this part of the service before moving through to other parts of the pathway such as our Merridale unit or a studio flat.

Merridale is a spacious purpose-built five bedded unit designed to support people on both rehabilitation and long term complex care pathways. The unit has dedicated facilities to enhance the experience of people living there, and provides a homely feel including access to a wheelchair-friendly garden. All rooms are en-suite with large wet rooms.

The transitional living units consist of studio flats for semi-independent living designed to enable clients to live as independently as possible, whilst still being able to access the services in the main house and Merridale. The level of support will depend on an individual’s needs and risk assessments.For some clients this may be a positive step to test out their skills before progressing to more independent living in the community, while for others it is an opportunity to live in a small environment tailored to their needs.
