Overview

Windermere House is a 41 bedded hospital located in an urban area of Hull, with all amenities this vibrant city has to offer accessible by local transport links.

The hospital itself is divided into 3 discreet wards, catering for men who have a diagnosis of dementia; acquired brain injury and/or complex care needs or a mental health diagnosis and who would benefit from a period of rehabilitation within a hospital setting. Windermere House is registered with the Care Quality Commission and patients can be admitted on either an informal or formal basis under the Mental Health Act 1983.

Within each ward, we employ a collaborative, multi-disciplinary approach which includes psychiatry; psychology and occupational therapy with each patient remaining central to their care and treatment pathway. We have developed close links with the local community and utilise all ‘ordinary’ community based services on a daily basis.

Accommodation at Windermere House comprises of single bedrooms, all with en-suite facilities; spacious shared lounge and dining areas, conservatory or games room with each ward having its own private garden. Other resources include a large activity room; therapy rooms; a rehabilitation kitchen and an IT suite. 

At Windermere House, we firmly believe in a person’s potential to recover and within the framework of The Mental Health Recovery Star (MHRS) we seek to maximise staff/patient communication; plan, quantify, describe, and track recovery leading to evidence based outcomes. We work closely with external professionals and families to achieve the best outcomes, enabling each individual to maximise their full potential and move on to a less restrictive environment.
