Model of Care
We are a Recovery based service and incorporate elements of the Good Lives Model, supported by individualised interventions. We have a full multidisciplinary team (MDT) with Nursing, Consultant Psychiatrist, Psychologist, Occupational Therapist and Social Worker support. Given the specific needs of our Service Users, the MDT work on an interdisciplinary basis, informed by functional analysis to develop highly personalised care plans, focussed heavily on emotional regulation, increased self-esteem and the development of anxiety management skills. All Service Users participate in a robust therapeutic programme which includes community involvement, education at local colleges, a focus on physical healthcare, support with day-to-day activities and life skills as well as daily planning meetings. This enables individuals to participate in therapy and be fully engaged in their treatment and recovery.
Victoria Gardens is a modern purpose built facility which provides small wards with en-suite bedrooms. Each ward has its own dining area, communal lounge, recreational area, laundry and a rehabilitation kitchen which provides Service Users with the opportunity to develop their daily living skills with the support of the nursing team and Occupational Therapists. There is also separate therapy space.
There are four self-contained apartments which provides a step through pathway from inpatient stay to pre discharge to residential community living. The apartments have their own front door and provide a bedroom, kitchen/ lounge and private bathroom. Service Users are encouraged to self-cater, manage their medication and engage with the many real work opportunities available within the local community.
Wi-Fi is available throughout the building and Service Users have access to technology as a learning, social and leisure resource.
A dedicated Skype room is also available for use along with a multi faith room.
