Northern Healthcare are a specialist provider of enhanced supported living services for individuals who require support relating to their mental health. Established in 2013 with the opening of the first scheme in Cumbria, we have expanded to cover a range of areas across the country.
We have developed a unique clinically led, recovery focused support model which provides individuals with dedicated 24 hour support. Our aims are simple, to make sure each person’s unique goals and aspirations are taken into account. Our role is to support, encourage and motivate them to get to where they want to be and to live a fulfilling and meaningful life.
We provide the framework to deliver effective recovery pathways through access to high-quality nursing, occupational and psychological therapies. Our key objective is to enable residents to lead healthy and productive lives and make sure they are socially included.
What are our values?
To ensure that we continue to provide a high standard of service that is focused on the welfare of our residents, we have a set of core values that we incorporate into our ways of working:
- To provide individual care pathways not ‘one size fits all’
- To maintain a robust risk management framework
- To work collaboratively to achieve maximum quality
- To promote choice, encourage involvement and listen to individual preferences
We work closely with practitioners to tackle their most pressing problems such as budget reductions, hospital bed reductions and the increasing incidence of mental health problems. With many years of NHS experience, our staff work with you seamlessly, understanding your pressures and requirements.
Following a comprehensive assessment with an experienced nurse or OT, we develop individual plans of support for every resident, encouraging social integration and supporting them to become more independent. We provide a set of carefully selected activities that are aligned to key objectives including:
- Gaining employment
- Developing skills for independent living and self-care
- Building self-esteem
- Forging relationships and social inclusion
- Recovering from addiction
- Becoming financially responsible
Our staff have many years combined NHS experience, so as a company we understand your challenges and are well placed to meet them. Our experienced clinical teams ensure robust and dynamic risk management working with the local CMHT teams to ensure that the assessments we use compliment those chosen by the local team.
