Our adult services in Scotland offer tailored care and support for people under the age of 65 with mental health problems, learning disabilities and neurodegenerative disorders. We offer comprehensive supported living, rehabilitation and residential services. We encourage and motivate people to increase their independence through therapeutic, leisure and social activities.
Mental health problems
We provide expert tailored care and support for people with a range of mild, moderate or severe mental problems, including schizophrenia, bipolar disorder, depression, anxiety and borderline personality disorder.
Our supported living services offer people tailored and targeted support while retaining the benefits of independent living. We support people to live in their own homes and participate in the local community as well as supporting them in accessing employment and further education.
Care plans are based on individuals’ needs, choices and wishes and we provide support with everyday tasks such as domestic duties and budgeting, as well as social and recreational pursuits. Through supported living, we encourage and motivate each person to increase their independence, confidence and self-development and maintain choice and control over their lives and priorities.
We also provide homely and supportive environments for people with health problems. In everything we do we focus on the needs of the people we support. Support is tailored to the needs, choices and aspirations of each individual and we focus on maintaining the privacy, dignity and independence of each person. We develop a range of therapeutic, leisure and social activities for people to become involved with. Our residential homes offer 24 hour supervision by our highly experienced and skilled mental health nurses.
We provide expert tailored care and support for people with a range of mild, moderate or severe learning disabilities including autism, Asperger’s syndrome and sensory processing disorder.
Through our supported living services we support people to stay in their own homes and retain their independence. Our tailored and targeted support is based on individuals’ goals, wishes, needs and aspirations and we look at what people can achieve independently, not just what they need assistance with. We believe that every person with a learning disability has the right to live a lifestyle of their own choosing and has the right to live in their own home and be part of a community. We provide support with everyday tasks such as domestic duties and budgeting, as well as social and recreational activities.
We also provide comfortable and well-equipped care homes for people with mild, moderate and severe learning disabilities. Support is tailored to each individual’s needs, wishes and goals and we work with each person to create a bespoke care and support plan. We support people to live a fulfilling and rewarding life, supporting them in their daily activities and tasks and maintaining their independence. We provide a diverse range of leisure and recreational activities that people can choose to become involved with and offer care from a team of highly skilled and experienced nurses and care assistants.
Brain injury and other neurodegenerative conditions
We provide comprehensive care, support and rehabilitation services for people with acquired or traumatic brain injury and other neurodegenerative conditions such as Huntington’s disease, Parkinson’s disease, early onset dementia and Pick’s disease.
We offer both long term care and rehabilitation in a comfortable and supportive environment and we work closely with the individual, their family and wider support networks to create a personalised care programme. Focusing on behaviour, cognition and mobility, we offer assessments based on key areas such as everyday life skills, cognitive skills and involvement in the local community.
We support and encourage people to reacquire practical skills such as cleaning, washing and cooking. We tailor support to individuals’ needs and encourage and motivate people to maintain or increase their independence through therapeutic, leisure and social activities.
All of our staff are selected for their experience in caring for people who have an acquired brain injury and other neurodegenerative disorders. We also work closely with external multi-disciplinary teams to make sure that the individual receives the appropriate levels of care and support.
