Wakefield Mental Health Supported Living Services

 

Wakefield Mental Health Supported Living service presently support clients who live in the Knottingley area, living in their own home. Our aim and ethos is to provide individual person centred support to adults with mental health problems, and enable them to maintain a good quality of life with support and live as independently within the local community as possible.

Staff support people, using support plans, which are recovery based and person centred and completed with the help of those who are important to tenant and know them best, including family, their Care Manager, other health and social care professionals, and maintained by the client in partnership with their St Anne’s Key Worker. Support to individuals is reviewed on a regular basis to ensure it is relevant and is meeting a person’s needs.

The Wakefield Mental Health Services team are able to provide advice and practical support around budgeting, and financial maintenance, daily living skills, health issues including medication management and prompting, social interactions and any other area identified by the individuals we support in order to promote their dignity, independence, opportunity and inclusion.

Coronavirus (Covid 19) Statement

Due to the exceptional circumstances due to the ongoing Coronavirus (also known as Covid 19) and the Government rules about self-isolating it is very important to reduce the risk of cross infection to all our Clients and staff teams. Our teams are working hard to support all our clients and are committed to keeping everyone as safe as possible.

This means that, in most circumstances, and in line with government information regarding self-isolation and staying at home there should be no visitors to any of our services.

We know, however, that this will be very distressing for some of our Clients.

Therefore, we are saying there must be no visitors to services unless there are exceptional circumstances and the visit is essential.

Before a visit can take place, this must be risk assessed by the manager considering government advice and the individual circumstances. Before setting off on any visit to your relative/friend please get in contact with St Anne’s staff to discuss your visit.

Our services are using all kinds of technology, including social media to make sure that the people we support can stay in touch with those important to them

St Anne’s has developed a visitors protocol to enable visits to begin again in North Yorkshire, East Yorkshire, Durham, Middlesbrough and Leeds care homes.

In line with Government & local Council Guidelines each Client may have one family member or other person who is close to them visit on a regular basis.

Decisions where visitors can go are being based on Individual Local Authority advice following Government guidelines.
