What we offer

We provide a high standard of assessment and compassionate care in a safe and therapeutic setting, and offer a range of therapeutic, culturally sensitive and person centred care to support recovery and a return to the community as soon as possible.

Who is the service for

Older adults aged 65 and over with mental health problems such as mild to moderate dementia, depression and psychotic illnesses who cannot be treated and supported appropriately at home or in an alternative setting.

What are the next stages to recovery

Following discharge from the ward patients could return home with an individualised care package if required, a period of Day Hospital attendance, follow up by the old age consultant in the Outpatient Clinic and/or involvement of the Community Mental Health Team or Dementia Home Treatment Team. For patients who are not able to return to their own home, assistance is offered prior to discharge to identify suitable alternative accommodation.
