We view kiritaki (clients) and whānau as partners at the centre of the rehabilitation journey.

Hello and welcome

Nau mai haere mai ki ABI Rehabilitation.
Ko tō mātou whainga ki a mahi i ngā mahi mauri ora mō ngā tangata me ngā whānau e noho ana i raro o ngā parirau o ABI Rehabilitation.

Welcome. We aim to provide a holistic and nurturing approach that encompasses all aspects of well-being for the benefit of our clients and their families beneath the expanded wings of our rehabilitation services.

What to expect

Clients at ABI will experience what we believe is a unique team approach to their rehabilitation journey. Our rehabilitation team is varied across the disciplines and includes medical specialists, psychology, occupational therapy, physiotherapy, speech and language therapy, nursing, social work, dietitian and rehab assistants.

The ABI teams are all committed to working towards the goals that the client and family set. ABI firmly believes that clients and their families-whānau are an integral part of the team.

Types of rehabilitation support

ABI is the leading provider of rehabilitation in NZ with specialist intensive and residential sites in Auckland and Wellington for people with TBI. ABI also provides community rehabilitation for those with TBI and other injuries and has a specialist paediatric team skilled in working with parents, schools and children with a wide range of injuries and disabilities.

Most of our community services can occur at home or another place of your choice, for example, school, work, kindy or at the ABI offices. The ABI team will talk to you about your preference. 

Founded in 1996, ABI Rehab was the first rehabilitation service in Australasia with CARF accreditation. 

How we deliver rehabilitation services

ABI has a team of approximately 300. All the clinicians have specialist training in rehabilitation and a single-minded focus on achieving outcomes. We believe people in New Zealand have the right to excellent rehabilitation that is evidence-based and outcome focussed. 

We invest in training and research to maintain an international standard of care. As an organisation, ABI is driven to lead, develop and benchmark rehabilitation services in New Zealand.

What is a Brain Injury?

Damage to the brain can occur immediately due to the injury, or it may develop from swelling or bleeding that can happen after the injury. After an injury, brain tissue may swell causing it to take up more room in the skull.
