Our Locations
Pinetree Court
Cardiff 29

Pinetree Court has 28 beds organised into single gender accommodation based on clinical need, although during the day both male and female patients may share physical and therapeutic spaces based on identification of need and individual risk assessments.

Communal living spaces are large, bright and airy and include homely lounges where patients can socialise.  In addition, each ward has a separate quiet sitting room which patients can access for relaxation. All patients have single bedrooms, some of which are en-suite.

At Pinetree Court, there are purpose built therapy and activity rooms where the experienced multi-disciplinary team offer an extensive range of therapeutic interventions and occupational therapy programmes.  Facilities include an arts and crafts studio, OT rehabilitation kitchen, group rooms, IT and education suite, games room and a polytunnel for horticultural work and activities.

There is a strong emphasis on community access to meet therapeutic goals, increasing skills and promoting social inclusion and integration.  Many patients are supported to attend local colleges, access sporting and leisure opportunities and participate in community environmental projects.

Our work skills coach facilitates the development of occupational skills, including voluntary work and paid work placements.
