We view Client and Family-Whānau as partners, at the centre of the rehabilitation journey.
Update: ABI Services during COVID-19
Thank you to all friends and whānau for your continued understanding with how ABI is operating during COVID-19. Auckland is still at Level 3 and Wellington at Level 2. Visiting ABI Intensive Inpatient and Residential Disability Services can be managed via a booking system. Due to the presence of Delta variant in the community, ABI is allowing visits from whānau members who are fully vaccinated in order to protect vulnerable clients and our essential workforce. This is a recent change but one we feel will help prevent COVID-19 getting into ABI. Please read the ABI news section to understand the requirements for visiting different ABI facilities. Community Rehabilitation is occurring face to face in Wellington, Northland, Wairarapa, and Manawatu at Alert Level 2. Telehealth is the preferred option in the Auckland region at Alert Level 3, but in accordance with Ministry of Health Guidelines some face to face visits can be provided where it is deemed essential. For face to face visits in the community, the ABI community team will be screening for health and vaccination status also. READ MORE

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.
ABI Rehabilitation Services
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.

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.

ABI has provided Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) and Stroke rehabilitation services in New Zealand for over 20 years. We are passionate about delivering a service that exceeds the expectations of the client, families-whānau.
