Lenka Jancekova

Brain Injury Case Manager


I qualified as a General Nurse in 2003. I also have a BA (Hons) in Criminology and Psychology, as well as a BSC in Social Sciences.

As a nurse I worked on a variety of medical and surgical wards including an Intensive Care Unit and Orthopaedic wards. I worked as a Deputy Care Manager of a care home for a short period of time. After that I developed an interest in brain injury rehabilitation in 2008 when I first began working with brain injured clients.  My first experience of working with brain injured clients was in a role of a rehabilitation support worker which enabled me to experience the difficulties and complexities of their needs. I learnt to appreciate person centered care whilst assisting them to reach their full potential and live their life as independently as possible. 

Brain Injury Experience:

In 2013, I commenced work as coordinator of a brain injury rehabilitation and support team in my client’s home. My role included:

  • coordinating the intervention of support workers and Multidisciplinary team
  • recruiting and managing large support worker teams, including carrying out supervision, training and performance reviews 
  • working closely with family members, solicitors and health care professionals 
  • providing assessments and other clinical documentation, such as risk assessments, support worker guidance, rehabilitation plans, progress reports, as required

Since joining Head First in 2018 I have enjoyed building on my previous experience and working with a wider range of clients, from those with severe physical difficulties including nursing needs, to those with cognitive and emotional or behavioural issues. I am involved in supporting clients and their families to cope with the many difficulties they face following brain injury, including managing complex support worker packages, co-ordinating and reviewing rehabilitation to maximise their potential, and engaging other services as required to enable them to live as safely and independently as possible.
