Nelson House

Nelson House is a 32 bedded locked rehabilitation recovery service for men and women with mental illness, complex needs, often accompanied by challenging behaviours.

Our beds are split over three wards:

  • Trafalgar - 14 bedded male ward
  • Victory - 14 bedded female ward
  • Marie Rose - 4 bedded pre-discharge pathway ward

Our approach

The unit focuses on developing patients' skills for independence and helping them learn new ways of managing their condition and symptoms with the aim of helping to prevent any future relapse. For patients with challenging behaviours, we work with them to learn skills to change their response to anxiety and distress.

Patients have access to a full programme of on-site activities. There are also established links with local colleges to provide education and vocational opportunities with a focus on maximising rehabilitation potential and meaningful leave.

Structured MDT Therapy sessions are held every day, offering group work and daily living skills. Patients are encouraged and assisted to make their own meals where appropriate in the purpose built self-catering kitchen. Patients are encouraged to develop and value their daily routine and organisational skills through self-directed activity.

Patients are encouraged to be actively involved in hospital developments by attending regular community meetings and taking part in patient involvement projects such has environmental works which enhance and empower the overall patient experience.

The therapy programme offers a 12 week timetable which includes in-house psychology and psychotherapy
