Holly provides eight intensive residential support service beds which meet the needs of those who have a learning disability and who display extreme complex behaviours. The Intensive Support Service provided at Holly is a ‘step-up’ facility for those individuals whose clinical presentation is more complex or who may suffer a relapse. It also offers a ‘step-down’ facility for patients discharged from hospital on Section 17 Leave or under Guardianship Order (1983 Mental Health Act).
Holly provides a care pathway to integrate current and future residential services inclusive of meaningful and realistic daytime activities. These activities are integral to the treatment of these individuals. With a high degree of structure within the program, it helps raise their self-esteem and coping skills and encourages them to become more autonomous.
Holly is a core component in the care pathway for individuals with a learning disability and complex behaviours. This model of care allows a whole system approach and a care pathway that can be re-introduced at varying stages of rehabilitation dependent on the clinical needs of the individual.
The service provides fluidity and a contingency at times of crisis which allows an effective support solution within the Company’s service structures for this complex group of people.
