We provide specialist acute inpatient care for older adults if your needs are too complex to be safely and optimally managed within the community. We provide separate specialist inpatient wards for the following needs:
Our wards are part of a care-management pathway, linked to our community-based services, to provide short-term specialist assessment and treatment interventions at times of crisis or complex need. If you have been assessed by our Community Mental Health Teams (CMHT) or Home Treatment Team (HTT) and it is felt that the crisis you are experiencing cannot be dealt with in the community, with your agreement we will seek to admit you on a short term basis for care on one of our wards.
This will generally only be done if you are a risk to yourself and others or you have major stressors at home or in the community which may prevent your recovery. You will be consulted about admission and treatment options throughout the whole process.
The purpose of admission is to enable safe and timely holistic assessment and treatment by specialist staff, and the development of individualised care and management plans to facilitate safe and effective discharge. The service aim is to return service users to the community as quickly and effectively as possible.
Key interventions provided by in-patient wards include:
