The Woodlands provides a specialist residential service for six men with a learning disability and complex conditions such as personality disorder, mental health problems and forensic issues.
The service at The Woodlands is an ordinary house on a residential street designed for those individuals who require a high level of support and supervision in a community setting, often as part of a pathway when stepping down from secure or hospital care.
The aim of the service is to encourage individuals to lead a full and valued life, enabling them to live more independently through a programme of active community engagement, developing meaningful social networks, managing risk and developing robust coping strategies.
The Woodlands forms a key part of Elysium Healthcare’s pathway of specialist learning disability services in Staffordshire which includes learning disability hospital services at The Woodhouse in Cheadle.
