We offer a safe, comfortable and homely setting where men can look forward to independent living with the advantage of continuing to access the same multi-disciplinary team (MDT) at Cygnet Sedgley House and Lodge.
The service has two bedrooms with shared access to a bathroom, kitchen, living area and courtyard. It is well placed for individuals to access supermarkets, gyms, banks, restaurants,
libraries and parks with good transport links to Wolverhampton and Birmingham. Individuals placed from further afield are supported with travel training, to enable them to visit their home area and build relationships with the community teams that they will utilise on discharge.
Each individual’s progress is reviewed on a monthly basis by a full multi-disciplinary team at an ‘outpatients’ clinic’ at Cygnet Sedgley House and Lodge. A weekly 1:1 session with allocated key-workers is on offer too, as well as meetings with a registered mental health nurse (RMN) and Registered General Nurse (RGN) to discuss medications and any other health concerns. For those who wish to, there is the option to continue regular psychology sessions, and attend day trips facilitated by the Occupational Therapy (OT) team.
Residents are given a weekly shopping budget to purchase fresh food. They are encouraged to cook independently, however, assistance is available if needed 24 hours a day. Regular community meetings give residents the opportunity to raise any problems or concerns with the environment.
