Typically, the transition home process will involve our Occupational Therapist liaising with local teams and accompanying the individual on a home visit to practice skills in their own home.
Arrangements for support and adaptations or equipment can then be organised if required.
Manton Heights will work with referrers to put together a phased discharge which may involve one of our outreach packages which will be agreed and funded by the referring team.
At Manton Heights ABI Unit we benefit from having two separate self-contained bungalows. Both are fully equipped with an open plan kitchen, dining room and living room. They also have a large bedroom with en-suite wet room. Both bungalows have a private garden.
These bungalows can be used as part of a discharge process or as an assessment for a client to ascertain what environment, care support and equipment are required in their own accommodation i.e. For settlement costs in legal cases.
We use specialist strategies and guidelines to aid residents’ relearning by supporting the individual in all activities of daily living including personal care, medication, menu planning, shopping, cooking, budgeting, leisure, vocational activities, work opportunities and social relationships. We encourage residents to participate in meaningful activities, which enable their involvement in the wider community.
Using our bungalow accommodation allows the individual to fully appreciate independent living, and to recognise any support they may require if they lived in the community alone. The therapists would support in problem solving and enabling the resident to manage any unforeseen circumstances and difficulties that may arise.
At the Manton Heights ABI Unit, we may also be able to provide outreach support once a resident has moved back into the community. This service will be inclusive and focused on the individual. Continuity and consistency of approach based on a philosophy of personal rights, dignity, privacy, individuality, equality, choice and fulfilment.
Our staff are fully trained and experienced in supporting individuals with an acquired brain injury, which will benefit the individual during this transition process. Risk Assessments guide staff who continue supporting the individual with previously established rehabilitation goals and coping strategies or where required, adjust and develop new specialist strategies and guidelines to aid relearning for individuals to achieve their goals such as activities of daily living including personal care, medication, menu planning, shopping, cooking, budgeting, leisure, working opportunities and social relationships.
We believe in the promotion of the highest possible degree of independence in the community whilst still providing quality care and support with the overall aim being to decrease support hours until the individual is able to live completely independently where possible.
