Princes Street is an enhanced community home which provides community focused rehabilitation for adults with mental health needs and/or a learning disability. The home is ideally located for safe, structured and gradual reintegration into the community, along with good transports links to Cardiff city centre.
The aim of the home is to provide a transition from a more secure environment back into community living. The support team will work with the individual to enable them to move into either supported living or more independent accommodation.
Our approach to support
Princes Street provides a wide range of person-centred activities, both within the home and at external venues. A well-established day care programme is operational, with individuals involved in training for daily living skills including cooking, washing and other domestic chores, arts and crafts and gardening.
Princes Street liaises with families, community organisations, social services departments and purchasing authorities to support person-centred care planning, and ensures that the social, emotional, cultural and spiritual needs of all individuals are taken into account.
Other elements of the service include:
- Initial assessment which takes place within two working days of a referral being made
- Care planning formulation
- Support with recognising, identifying and achieving goals and ambitions
- Regular planning reviews
- Risk assessments carried out and reviewed on a monthly basis or when required
- A focus on supporting residents to develop independent living skills
- Recreational and social activities such as cinema visits, day trips and outings
