The service is very experienced in supporting people who display behaviours that others may find challenging who need specialist support plans and interventions.

With a positive environment, the focus is on supporting greater independence and inclusion.  Individuals often move to Deansbrook from more secure and restrictive environments and may have experienced placement breakdowns.  Our aim is to support them in a less restrictive setting where they have choices around their day to day lives and can reintegrate into their local community.

The service consists of four individual two bedroom flat-lets in the main house, all with en-suites and separate lounges and there are also large communal spaces to encourage social interaction.  There is an additional separate bungalow within the grounds.

The team maintain a very positive attitude and support individuals with very complex needs through a transitionary period in their lives.  Transition is supported by a named key worker and is the start of the individual’s person centred plan.

Whilst in a rural area, people are supported to access the community daily for shopping and various leisure activities and some are supported to attend local colleges.  Emphasis is also placed on individuals having input into the running of the home and housekeeping tasks to build confidence and greater independence.

We all have a responsibility to monitor the needs of people to make their care as good as it can be.
