Admissions are carefully planned and a supportive transition period and adherence to CPA process precedes arrival at Vestige healthcare. During the admission period the focus is on MDT assessment of need and psychologically-led interventions aimed at engagement and safety and stabilisation in acknowledgement of the high-risk transition period.
Developing relationships is key to successful engagement in therapeutic programmes and our MDT prioritise getting to know the person in our care through formal and informal assessments and activities. Our staff will support individuals to orientate to their environments and personalise living spaces as a tool to engagement and will encourage a daily routine and sleep plan to aid wellness.
It is essential to plan for discharge from services at the point of admission to reduce the risk of dependence and avoid therapeutic milleau. Aspirational discharge plans will be central to the plan of care during month 1-3.
