Providing Residential and Supported Living Care facilities
Our shared houses and self-contained apartments form part of our unique 5 stage recovery model. This allows individuals to move on to more independent living settings within the same organisation and offers seamless transition with better outcomes and cost reductions.
React’s clinical team comprises of a Clinical Nurse Specialist, Clinical Psychologist and a Consultant Forensic Psychiatrist. This professional team underpins the service and offers support to the staff providing direct care through supervision, reflective practice, training and the development of care plans and risk management strategies. They are available to provide advice and direction at points of crisis and to work with individuals on a 1-1 basis where required.
Our services are designed to provide care to individuals diagnosed with mental illness, personality disorder and/ or mild learning disability. Many of our individuals have complex presentations and multiple diagnoses including brain injury and autistic spectrum disorders. The residential care services all have waking night staff.
The location of services in and around central Cardiff offers individuals excellent access to public transport and to rehabilitation opportunities and activities. Services are provided in residential areas with easy access to amenities and to the City Centre.
Assessments of suitability for our services involve dialogue with placing clinicians and commissioners in order to identify the required care outcomes and detailed arrangements for service delivery. We have experience of working closely with forensic and personality disorder services in the development of highly individualised risk management plans for individuals presenting with significant risk in community settings.
Individuals are placed with us from a range of settings including medium and low secure services, locked rehabilitation, general adult mental health services, children’s services and prisons. We have been successful in developing ways of working together that reduce the frequency and severity of incidents as individuals move into community-based services from more controlled environments.
We have positive working relationships with multi-agency partners such as Police, Welsh Ambulance Service, Psychiatric Liaison and colleagues at the local hospital which enables us to develop multi-agency, multi-disciplinary responses to the most challenging issues.
