I have 20 years’ experience in mental health and currently have 3 people on placement with Aspire.
I have worked with Aspire for over 2 years and have found their service to be of the highest quality and the people who are resident with them have excellent care plans and are well looked after.
We have a range of residential and respite care facilities, with more under construction and in planning stages.
Our process for young persons 16-18 years & Adults 18-65 years
ApproachWe offer different levels of support, depending on the needs of each individual service user, whether short-term emergency intervention, residential recovery and rehabilitation, or long term support for those with chronic or severe conditions.
We use PCP (Person Centred Planning) processes to help service users plan their lives now and in the future. This is instantly more empowering than having a care plan imposed on you and is the beginning of enabling people to take charge of their lives and achieve their potential.
AssessmentThose eligible for admission to our residential recovery and rehabilitation centre at Chilwell House, will already have a care coordinator. They are likely to have been suffering with enduring mental illness, characterised by frequent relapses and re-admissions to hospital.
First we will ensure that a potential resident has the cognitive and emotional capacity to manage with limited direct supervision in an open environment, without putting themselves or others at risk. We will also ascertain their willingness to participate in a residential recovery programme.
Once these criteria are confirmed, our multi-disciplinary team will conduct a holistic assessment of needs, through observations, interviews and self-assessment. This encompasses a range of areas, including mental health and physical well-being, personal and spiritual needs, self-care and basic living skills, motivation, interests and goals, interpersonal abilities and any social or legal issues.
Recovery PlanIn addition to providing therapeutic services and undertaking psycho-educational and relapse prevention work, we encourage residents to take part in socially inclusive activities within the facility and in the community, helping rebuild confidence and re-equipping them with the necessary life skills.
Therapies and activities available include:
- Drama and Art Therapy
- Relaxation Therapy
- Lifestyle coaching
- Meal planning and preparation
- Basic computer skills
We offer long term residential care to adults age 18-65 with mental health problems, who are unable to live at their own home, even with support, and are also unlikely to benefit from our rehabilitation program towards supported or independent living in the community.
