Aims and Objectives

To provide a much-needed service for people with complex mental health needs

Our Units

Vestige Healthcare Group aims to:

  • provide a transitional service offering therapeutic treatment for young adults with mental health conditions where their support has not been successful in other placements or where they may be at risk of inpatient admission
  • provide a therapeutic service where we provide people with the skills and abilities to successfully maintain an independent life aiming to support them to reach their full potential whilst optimising their mental health
  • provide care and treatment within a person-centred approach which responds to changes in our service user needs and wishes
  • provide support by enabling individuals to live a fulfilling life and to be in control and empowered as much as possible

Vestige Healthcare Group serves a local population that includes residents of the West Midlands, Coventry and Warwickshire as well as individuals who have been placed in long term care in out of area facilities due to historical lack of provision for this client group.

We are aiming to be a leading care provider within our field, offering a unique and innovative approach to working with young people. We welcome the challenges and opportunities to further strengthen the engagement and involvement with key stakeholders.

Our Objectives

Objective One:

We will provide a high quality of care for all our service users. By adopting an evidenced based, NICE compliant approach we will provide a range of therapeutic approaches to care and treatment that meet the needs of a disparate group of service users. At the same time, we strive to meet the aims and objectives of person-centred approaches and collaboration and co-production.

We provide a psychologically informed environment where we support service users to manage the complex nature of their conditions, so they become less reliant on self-harming behaviours, challenging behaviours and overall become more independent in life skills and self-management of their conditions. We ensure that we meet the needs of those service users who present risks of harm and those with behaviours of distress through a formulated, relationally secure, clinically sound approach to patient care and positive behaviour support.

Objective Two:

Maintain fidelity to our Care Pathway and Model of Care and deliver a range of needs-led, multi-disciplinary treatments and interventions aimed at safe, planned step-down and discharge. We will engage with those service users whose needs require more than can be offered by existing in-patient services by offering intensive, evidence-based psychological therapies and therapeutic activities, such as, when appropriate, Cognitive Analytic therapy (CAT), Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (CBT), Dialectic Behaviour Therapy (DBT), Eye Movement Desensitisation and Reprocessing (EMDR), Occupational Therapy, Positive Behaviour support and mindfulness as well as any other established evidence based and NICE compliant interventions.

Objective Three:

Ensure that living environments remain dignified and respectful and underpinned by psychological principles; ensuring we treat people who use our service with the unconditional positive regard they deserve. We are committed to relational security and providing compassionate care delivered by appropriately skilled and qualified staff at all times. It is essential that our service users live in a safe, homely environment whilst we work in partnership with them to develop emotional, interpersonal and practical skills.

Our services are not intended to be lifelong placements but rather enable people to engage meaningfully in care and treatment that will empower them to move on from the services with greater self-control and independence.

The company leaders have many years’ experience of working in health and social care. We are particularly concerned with how these experiences, as well as the impact of physical and relational trauma, inform personality development alongside the onset and maintenance of more recognisable symptoms of challenging behaviour and mental health difficulties.

Vestige Healthcare has experience of assessing and caring for individuals with complex difficulties, both in in-patient and community settings. We are committed to working with service users and responsible clinicians and the multi-disciplinary team in order to provide excellent care and treatment, whilst maintaining safety with the least restrictive methods.
