Arbour Lodge has a constantly-evolving service which supports individuals to achieve their goals through shared work, helping them fulfil their potential based on care planning, key worker relationships and a focused therapeutic environment. An atmosphere of empowerment enables individuals to take control of their daily life and achieve their optimum level of independence. Staff support people by taking a person-centred approach, including the person at the heart of all that is going on within their own life.
We are flexible and adaptable to the needs of our patients and referrers enabling us to accept planned short-notice referrals as well as admissions transitions through our assessment processes in to our care. The main focus of our hospital is to support people with challenging behaviours.
At Arbour Lodge people enjoy excellent social links with our local community and utilise the facilities they have to offer, including local social outlets, cafés, leisure and retail facilities, which are within walking distance or easily accessible through public transport.
Everybody living here has their own bedroom, and the bedrooms all have en-suite shower rooms designed to anti-ligature specifications. Arbour Lodge also offers assisted bathrooms and disabled toilets.
Patients at Arbour Lodge are also encouraged to enjoy short residential breaks and holidays away from hospital, supported by a strong team of nurses and support workers. The hospital bases its approach on a belief in the individual’s potential to recover.
