We are developing Hospital based services and currently operate a residential service for adult (18+) individuals of any age suffering from neurological conditions that severely affect their behaviour, ability to process information, ability to remember or function independently. Individuals in our care may come from a variety of settings. In some cases they may come from mental health hospitals having developed dementia or sustained a brain injury. In other cases they may come from failed community placements, acute hospitals, neurorehabilitation services or even secure units. The service specialises in aggression, agitation, sexual disinhibition, vocalisations and other behaviour that poses a risk to individuals or those around them.
The Hospital services will caters to the needs of individuals detained under the mental health act—including forensic sections—and those detained using deprivation of liberty safeguards.
The Residential service caters to the needs of individuals under a Community Treatment Order (CTO) – including individuals applicable of deprivation of liberties safeguarding or informal clines.
We use well-evidenced methods to reduce risk and incidents and improve quality of life
We are able to reduce medication through the design of our environment and the use of evidence-based non-pharmacological interventions such as dementia care mapping and sensory interventions.
We track a variety of outcomes in domains such as meaningful activity, physical health, quality of life and risk.
We offer our services to individuals with neurocognitive/neuropsychiatric conditions such as fronto-temporal dementia, Huntington’s disease, Korsakoff syndrome, acquired and traumatic brain injury, and others.
Our services offer specialist physiotherapy, speech and language therapy, neuropsychology, neuropsychiatry and specialist OT services. This way we are able to cater to complex needs such as significant mobility problems, problems with swallowing, aggressive behaviour and neuropsychiatric symptoms.
The right environment: Some individuals are trapped in acute wards as no nursing home will accept them due to their risks. Due to our specialist model of care and our adapted environment we can manage their risks while providing them with a better experience.
The right level of security: Some individuals are in services that have an excessive level of security due to their previous forensic history. Community services are unable to offer them placement. We can accommodate patients detained under the mental health act, including those who are restricted, and we are able to provide them with the right level of security for their current level of risk.
Cost effective: We offer a service that will minimise the need for staff providing continuous support. Our programme is effective in reducing the amount of sedation and we optimise physical health. This approach provides the best service for these individuals: safe, bespoke to their condition and cost-effective.
