Mildmay Oaks is a low secure and locked rehabilitation service for males and females with learning disabilities and autistic spectrum disorders (ASDs). Our full care pathway includes the following facilities:
- Low secure, learning disability (LD) - 18 male beds
- High dependency patients (low secure, LD) - 8 beds
- Locked rehabilitation, learning disability - 14 female beds, 16 male beds
We aim to support patients in a range of community-based activities as part of a full treatment programme and to prepare them in moving through their discharge pathway towards a community- based placement.
Mildmay Oaks encourages patients with learning disabilities and ASDs to achieve their potential of safe living in the least restrictive environment.
Patients participate in community group meetings whereby they will agree and plan daily and weekly activities on-site and within the community.
Community activities include:
- Trips to local areas
- Visits to the local village, local café, cinema, theatre and bowling alley
- Community and outreach programmes to attend education providers and placements
- Family care
- Real work opportunities
Focus on Safety
Our absolute priority is to make sure we operate safe and effective services 24/7 and that all staff understand what is required of them to make that happen. Click here to read more.
We recognise that the people in our care are part of a wider circle of family, friends and networks which are important to them. We aim to work in partnership with families to ensure that we provide the right service for their relative but also to support them in their own right as carers.
Family carers are encouraged to develop good contact arrangements with the ward manager, social worker and clinical team.
We welcome visitors to Mildmay Oaks and are happy to provide family carer updates via email and phone.
For more information on the services, you can view our service brochures.
We believe that the environment in which our therapy takes place, is just as important as the treatment itself, and we provide:
- Newly refurbished wards
- En-suite bedrooms for each patient
- Lounge areas
- Rehabilitation kitchens
- AstroTurf football pitch
- Patient shop
- Outdoor gym equipment and individually prescribed exercise programmes as part of a healthy living programme
- Horticultural area
- Smoke-free service
