Get In Touch


The environment is designed to offer a rehabilitation service with all areas of the service encouraging the development and maintenance of independent living skills. There are 2 floors each with 7 bedrooms all with en-suite bathrooms, the rooms are designed to replicate that of a small bedsit with a bathroom, bed area and living area which would be provided within normal community/supported living. There is a communal kitchen with dining area and lounge to encourage social interaction and integration. A large activity room and ADL kitchen is also available and landscaped areas around the building with a perimeter fence ensuring safety and security is maintained.

Measuring Effectiveness

As a new service we will continue to develop, utilising feedback, audit and changes in best practice. We will utilise AIMS standards and QUIRC for self-assessment of our service.

Every patients general mental wellbeing is assessed on admission (baseline) and reviewed (in terms of progress) in preparation for every CPA. We utilise the following outcomes measures;

  • Patient Rated Outcomes Measure- DIALOGUE
  • Clinician Rated Outcomes Measure- The Life Skills Profile
  • ICD10
  • RISK ASSESSMENTS- START, HCR20 where there is a history of violence
  • Feedback from patients, carers and staff.
  • Average length of stay

Additional psychometric measures are used, as deemed appropriate, pre and post therapeutic intervention and/or specialised treatment to assess clinical change.

HOPE Rehabilitation Model and Interventions Toolkit

The Hope Model has been developed by KR Health and Social Care, the focus of the model is placed upon the service user’s personal recovery journey, with the emphasis on the pathway, their goals and the future. The model itself incorporates five core domains which form a bespoke pathway chosen by the Service User, the family and the care team and is tailored to individual need. For each domain a toolkit of accessible interventions is available as part of their treatment programme which is determined with the service user based on their individual needs.
