We encourage Service Users to pursue and develop social activities, hobbies and leisure interests as part of their recovery model. We work with service users to explore their wishes and to help
them in working towards meeting these goals. They are encouraged to choose their own lifestyle and to access the wider community in the same way any other individual would. Below is a list of just
some of the activities.
♦ Music, Light and Art therapy
♦ Household skills
♦ Social education
♦ College courses, visits to pubs, restaurants, places of interest, theatre, cinemas and sports
♦ Cookery skills
♦ Country walks, picnics to woodlands and beach etc.
♦ Indoor bowling
♦ Dancing and exercising
♦ Interactive sensory and stimulatory environments
♦ Numeric and Literacy skills
♦ Computer usage and electronic gaming
The list is endless.........

Once you’ve decided – we’ll arrange a pre-admission assessment, which will help us to understand your needs and prepare for any specific requests.
One or two days before admission – you’re welcome to have access to your room, so that you can prepare it with personal possessions.
On the first day – you’ll meet your named carer and perhaps some of the other Service Users if you’d like to, and we’ll do everything we can to make sure you feel at home.
Four weeks after admission – there will be a full review of your care plan to assess whether you’re satisfied, and if you’d like to remain here. At this stage (and at each monthly review after that) the care plan can be altered to ensure that you receive the care that’s exactly right for you.
