85 Brecon Road is a five-bedded residential community home providing step-down care for females suffering from complex mental illness. We are located in Abergavenny, Monmouthshire, offering a wide range of amenities nearby, making the home ideally located for safe, structured and gradual reintegration into the community.
Our aim is to help patients to gain confidence and build independence in order to improve their quality of life.
Brecon Road uses a holistic and person-centred approach to encourage patients to make choices and work towards independence. Our team works in collaboration with the patient, care co-ordinators and the commissioning team to deliver a package of care that is realistic and specific to the individual’s needs.
An initial assessment takes place within two working days of a referral being made and a care plan formulation takes place once the full assessment has been completed.
Patients are involved in designing their own care plan with staff support and these plans are tailored to suit individual requirements and to provide the correct level of support.
We have review meetings take place every six months and risk assessments are carried out and reviewed on a monthly basis or when required.
Support is offered to help patients to develop daily living skills such as:
- Personal hygiene
- Maintaining the home
- Budgeting money and saving for the future
- Healthy eating
All bedrooms are spacious, well-furnished and can be individually personalised. Communal areas include:
- A kitchen
- A dining room
- A spacious lounge
All areas are tastefully decorated to provide a comfortable and homely living environment.
We focus on lifestyle and support patients to attend voluntary work placements, college, the local gym, and community activities outside the home.
