More information about The Cottage
All our services are specifically designed to provide small group or single person environments, replicating an ordinary living setting. These allow for the development of daily living skills aimed at a move towards more independent living.
We provide person centred and care planned outcome focused interventions to support recovery to better health and greater independence. We facilitate engagement in the community and the opportunity to develop new lifestyle choices to improve self-esteem and confidence.
Our ethos is built upon a shared belief that the person is central to everything we do, and we ensure we are responsive to service users changing needs, reviewing and revising plans to meet these needs. We value positive risk-taking opportunities within a context of robust risk assessment and management to ensure those we support are kept safe.
Each of our services are staffed by an experienced team of professional managers, support workers, and nurses. Each service has a team of clinical psychiatrists, psychologists and assistants, occupational therapists, social worker, speech and language therapists and advocacy.
