Ty Ffynu is a four-bedded enhanced community home providing community focused rehabilitation and step-down care for both male and females suffering from complex mental illness.
The facility uses a holistic and person-centred approach with support from our experienced multidisciplinary team. People are encouraged to make their own choices, which lead them towards independence.
We provide an initial assessment that takes place within two working days of a referral being made and the care plan formulation for an individual takes place once the full assessment has been completed and all information has been gathered.
All individuals are involved in designing their own plan with staff support and these plans are tailored to suit individual requirements and provide the correct level of support.
A dedicated staff team are on duty 24 hours a day, providing support with all day-to-day aspects of life, empowering people to live life to their full potential.
The service also focuses on a Care Programme Approach (CPA) review meeting which takes place within the first six weeks of admission and every three to six months thereafter.
The unit is led by an effective multidisciplinary team, experienced in rehabilitation, recovery and caring for individuals with complex needs. The team includes:
- Consultant psychiatrists
- Occupational therapists
The team also benefits from a progressive training programme towards achieving NVQ standards. The staff team are all trained to at least NVQ II and III.
