We offer a safe, supportive, therapeutic and structured environment conducive to the well-being of our residents. Most of our residents stay with us for a short period of time before moving, others stay with us longer-term. Our primary focus is rehabilitation. Individuals staying with us are given the freedom and support to make their own life choices and decisions so that they can lead happier, more fulfilling lives. When they are ready, individuals have the opportunity to move into our one-bedroom flat to experience living independently, safe in the knowledge that help and support is close at hand should they need it. We also provide respite care.

Short-term rehabilitation

Short-term rehabilitation

We help each resident develop the key skills needed to undertake everyday tasks such as shopping and cooking. Encouraging regular participation in meaningful activities such as leisure activities, education and, wherever possible, employment opportunities helps reduce the likelihood of relapse. Not only do we encourage residents to make decisions about their care plans, risk management tools and daily activities but also in relation to the wider service such as championing different aspects of the service and getting involved in service improvements. If they wish, residents can work alongside our catering, housekeeping and maintenance staff to further build their skills and confidence and experience 'real' working life as part of their therapeutic journey.

Respite Care

Respite Care

A short stay at Sherwood is available for those individuals who live at home but who could benefit from a change of scene. It also offers a break for families and carers and is an opportunity to have care needs re-assessed and to join in with the activities on offer.
