I have had the opportunity to work alongside Chilwell house rehabilitation unit in my role as lead nurse within the Early Intervention team.
The team supported a careplan to allow for one of my clients to discharge from hospital after a lengthy admission. Over time they made efforts to not only support the transfer but also to set and review moving on goals. This enabled my client to shift from being somewhat inactive and lacking any plan or structure to his day to having positive thoughts about moving on with his life.
Learning Disability Residential and Respite Care
We can offer our community service users (aged 18+) emergency admission into our Residential Rehabilitation Centre for short-term intensive treatment.
Residential careWe 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.
Respite careWe provide respite care for clients who live in their own homes, during holiday or sick leave absence when carers or personal assistants are away. This service can be provided at the client's home or as Residential Respite Care at our Residential Rehabilitation Centre.
What are people saying
It is reassuring to find a rehabilitation enterprise that has a ‘moving on’ focus rather than a stagnant and outdated way of providing only a care home facility. In my experience staff at Chilwell House are proactive with their plan of care and work in the best interests of their residents. This facility is an ideal stepping stone for people wanting to reintegrate into the local community.
