Taking a neurobehavioural approach we are experienced in psychological assessment and behavioural analysis to formulate positive behavioural management plans to support successful transitional rehabilitation of the individuals in our service.
Our model of care enables us to draw upon a wide range of interventions, from environmental changes to medication, or person-centred support plans and specialised diets. At St Peter’s Hospital our focus is on reducing distress, maintaining personhood and improving quality of life. Promoting connection is at the heart of our approach to psychosocial intervention – connection with other people; connections with a sense of self through memories and familiar occupation, and connection with the surrounding environment.
On arrival all our patients undergo a 16-week assessment which then helps formulate clear and time-focused care and transition plans.
In addition, our transitional rehabilitation service includes training for new providers, families and locality teams to share an increased understanding of the individuals’ needs and care plans, in order to support successful onward placement.
We also offer longer term rehabilitation for those individuals who may require lengthier support or whose condition is likely to deteriorate further.
