Our Cedar House site is intentionally split into five separate bungalows/houses. Not only does this arrangement better reflect future community living but we know from experience that our patient group do better in small familiar environments where there are less people and less noise. Our layout also enables us to place patients in the unit specifically geared to their age, gender and their particular rehabilitation and support needs. On the same site is Poplar House, a transitional service for those preparing to move on.

We aim to help patients move to more independent environments as soon as they are able and support them in ultimately getting back into the community. Education plays a critical role in helping us achieve this goal.

We provide a high quality, person-centred care pathway and evidence-based approach to assessment, treatment, rehabilitation and recovery. Our treatment programmes include individual and group therapies. All our therapies are delivered within a well-established evidence-based psychological model of care known as Positive Behaviour Support (PBS). We support our patients to gain skills and coping strategies to help them live with or overcome the challenges posed by their illness or condition. Developing skills not only builds confidence and encourages self-esteem but also equips our patients with skills for life. At Cedar House we don’t just focus on self-care, wellbeing, health promotion and daily living skills, we also look at building confidence through education. From the point of admission, we are focused on the skills an individual needs to develop in readiness for discharge or the next stage of their journey.
