Accomplish shortlisted in LaingBuisson Awards 2018
Grove View is a female only service providing a specialised support pathway for nine women with complex Mental Health needs, Personality Disorders and behaviour that can challenge, within a comfortable, safe and secure environment. We work closely alongside individuals with self-harm and suicide ideation utilising Mental Health relapse prevention plans and picking up on early trigger and warning signs to minimise the risks. At Grove View, we see our role as one which empowers and supports women to achieve their goals. We do this by ensuring that they are at the heart of everything. With the right support we feel individuals can move along our care pathway towards independent living, with the skills needed to live a healthy, happy independent life.
We recognise that everyone is different, so we adapt our support to suit each person’s needs. We offer the right environment to enable mental and physical well-being. We support women to maintain their identity whilst we work with them to regain their self-confidence and start to manage their own Mental Health and relapse.
We have successfully worked with individuals who have complex, long-term rehabilitation needs and a proven record of enabling people to move on to more independent models of support. We work alongside women to help them build their future and increase personal empowerment. We support women to access training, volunteering, education and where possible employment opportunities. Everyone is encouraged to engage in their local community and learn and practise new skills and supported to rediscover skills which may have previously been lost. Our aim is to improve everyone’s social awareness skills which are further developed through accessing the community. Our approach offers people access to college, travel training and leisure activities.
Mental Health Relapse Prevention Plan
Each individual will have a Mental Health relapse prevention plan, which details early warning signs of relapse, following the traffic light system. Green showing everyday behaviours, Amber showing some sign of relapse and Red showing some concern of relapse. The plans have early warning signs and triggers, which are set with the person we support and the community Mental Health team. Using these tools and provisions, staff get to know warning signs and early intervention, utilising distraction techniques or medication can be implemented at the earliest opportunity.
Recovery Star Model
We use the Recovery Star Model, an outcomes-based measurement tool recognised by the Department of Health. By using the Recovery Star, we are able to support a person’s recovery by measuring progress in areas including managing their Mental Health, enhancing living skills, building and maintaining social networks and building self-esteem to maximise independence.
Progression Pathway – Studio Apartments
Our studio apartments offer a clear progression pathway, within a residential support setting. The pathway offers an opportunity for self-development and maximum personal growth, regardless of complex health and social care needs. The apartments provide a private space for staff to enable skill development or coaching sessions. People can trial independence in a setting which has 24 hour staffing available, to assist with development of their life skills. We feel that the creation of our semi-independent transition studio apartments, enables people who want to live more independently, take those first steps to greater independence within a safe, risk managed environment.
Grove View is located within the small, friendly community of Birchgrove. It is a detached house with six bedrooms, all en-suite. There are three self-contained studio apartments, all with their own kitchen and bathroom. There is a laundry/utility room, a modern kitchen, a lounge/dining room and a second lounge leading onto a patio area, with views overlooking Swansea Vale.
