Mildmay Oaks is a low secure and locked rehabilitation service for males and females with learning disabilities and autistic spectrum disorders (ASDs). The hospital is set in the countryside of North Hampshire, with local towns and villages that are accessible by public transport and by foot. 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, LD – 22 male beds and 8 female 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 LDs 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, café, cinema, theatre and bowling alley
- Community and outreach programmes to attend education providers and placements
- Family care
- Real work opportunities
We have a variety of resources on-site including:
- A shop run by our service users
- A sports pitch
- Outdoor gym equipment
- A vegetable garden
- A therapy cabin for 1:1 and group sessions
Mildmay Oaks’ Recovery College
Overall, our Recovery College aims to provide further opportunities for patients to improve their wellbeing through education and skills development workshops.
We run our Recovery College alongside our occupational therapy timetable. Sessions take place within our therapy cabin, which has teaching space as well as a kitchen. We also run some sessions on the wards.
