Priory Adult Care is part of Priory, the leading independent provider of behavioural care in the UK. Our range of services enable us to provide unique and individual care pathways for those we support. We can provide a seamless transition for each individual as they progress between our higher and lower dependency services.
Across the UK, our Healthcare services include acute, psychiatric intensive care unit (PICU) services, along with brain injury, secure and rehabilitation and recovery services. Priory Adult Care provides specialist residential support for adults with learning disabilities, as well as complex needs including autism and mental health needs. Together with our supported living services, they offer pathways to more independent living.
Seamless support between Healthcare and Adult Care services
With our Healthcare and Adult Care services both part of Priory, transitions between the two are smoother and more successful. Each individual that we support has a completely bespoke transition plan, and this personalised approach ensures that whether stepping up or stepping down, people receive the specialist support that they need. From the point of admission, we focus on providing a planned pathway towards greater independence. We deliver person-centred care that is carefully tailored to the needs of each person and consistently achieves the best possible outcomes.
Our assessment and transition directors oversee the placements of individuals with complex autism, ensuring they are comfortable and happy at every step of the way. They work across our Healthcare and Adult Care services to support seamless care pathways from hospital to residential settings, as well as supporting those requiring a pathway from a service outside of Priory.
Priory supports the Learning Disability and Autism Programme Agenda by helping people with complex needs to lead active and fulfilling lives in their communities. We have an assessment and transition director for complex autism to plan and oversee all complex placements, in addition to specialists in areas including autism and positive behaviour support. Our extensive experience and expertise means that we offer stability and success for those we support.
By supporting people moving from hospital to live more independently, as well as those who are stepping down to a hospital setting, we reduce the likelihood of placement breakdown. The continuity of support they receive enables people to lead active and fulfilling lives and to achieve their full potential. Our aim is that people are supported to live the life that they choose in their own homes, in the community.
Specialist care pathways
Through a network of high quality facilities, we offer joined up care pathways for the people we support. We provide programmes which integrate healthcare, therapy, specialist residential and supported community living that are tailored according to individual needs.
By offering these care pathways, we provide a wide range of benefits to each person we support. These include:

- All-inclusive and clear communication
- Planned and detailed transitions, with key staff introduced early
- Increased engagement to shape their own future
- Continuation of education/employment and a consistent home setting
- Integrated and planned transitions from education to adult care
Our care pathways also provide a range of benefits to commissioning teams. These include:
- Early identification of changes to support needs and planned new approaches proposed
- Highly effective positive behaviour support (PBS) specialists to support transitions and behaviour management
- Decreased likelihood of a placement breakdown, due to consistency for the individual
- Potential phased reduction of funding
- Clear pathway plans to enable mapped vacancies and placements for future individuals
- Planned discharge working to end of terms, with support ensuring positive transitions
