Holland House provides a step down for individuals who are ready to move on from hospital settings to more independent living, as part of their rehabilitation pathway.
Before admission, a key worker is allocated and, if needed, a transition plan implemented to ensure a successful move from the individual’s current placement. A Consultant Psychiatrist will oversee and review the support and treatment given, on a monthly basis.
Through person centred planning Individuals are supported (only where necessary) and encouraged to independently undertake their own personal care requirements, domestic duties, shopping, cooking, self medicate (where applicable), manage own finances, undertake work placements and organise social activities to enhance life skills.
Outcomes and activities are agreed in-line with individual needs, interests, wishes and ambitions and in collaboration with commissioners, families and significant others. Establishing meaningful activities promote independence and individuality- the home facilitates gardening projects, art work, further education, work experience and charity work to name a few.
Individuals are encouraged to make informed choices and to take informed risks.
