We specialise in residents with mental health issues, and have regular access to a psychiatrist.  We take a very positive and empowering approach to our residents’ care.  

One of the things we do is pet therapy.  We have plastic cows – very low maintenance! - chickens, rabbits, guinea pigs and budgies.  The residents feed the chickens, they clip them, collect the eggs and secure them at night.  It’s all about the wellbeing of the hens, but it’s actually about the occupation of the residents, and it’s extremely therapeutic for them.  We also have pet therapy with dogs, hens and guinea pigs, which sit on the residents’ knees and keep them occupied and relaxed.
