St John’s House provides quality, specialised treatment for males and females with learning disabilities where their needs challenge mainstream service provision in medium and low secure services.
Based in the village of Palgrave on the Norfolk/Suffolk border, the strength of St John's House lies in the quality of the comprehensive assessment, treatment and care it provides. The emphasis is on a holistic and individualised approach delivered by multidisciplinary teams who are skilled, experienced professionals trained in their specific field.
St John’s offers medium and low secure services for females and medium secure services for males as part of the full discharge pathway, where patients are supported to move onto nearby low secure services at Burston House and community rehabilitation services at Lombard House and Richmond House.
Patients are encouraged to develop their skills in a community setting and individual programmes will vary dependent on patients’ needs as they progress through medium secure to low secure and community rehabilitation services. Patients are also supported to participate in the on-site or community-based Real Work Opportunities (RWOs) Programme including employment and voluntary placements.
We believe that a therapeutic environment that promotes the rehabilitation of our patients is very important, so we provide a range of on-site facilities and activities which include:
- Therapy rooms
- Rehabilitation kitchen
- IT room
- Education room
- Art room
- Vegetable gardens
- Hairdressing salon
- Animal care
