Leeds Rehab and Recovery Inpatient Services are comprised of two units offering comprehensive assessment and individualised care packages of interventions within a safe and supportive inpatient environment. This is in addition to Ward 5 which is our locked rehab service. We also have a Recovery Centre which is a key part of the inpatient service.
The service aims to promote recovery and improve the service users everyday functioning supported by a multidisciplinary team comprising of nurses, occupational therapists, psychologists, medical colleagues, healthy living advisors, dieticians and support workers.
The two community inpatient units based on the one site are called Asket Croft and Asket House and they offer a stepped pathway in order to meet the individual needs of the service users. Both units are mixed sex and in total have 22 male beds and 14 female.
Asket Croft is the ‘supported unit’ and is able to provide support to service users in the early stages of their recovery for those who have a higher level of need. This unit provides a catered facility and has higher staffing levels in order to maintain the health and safety of the service users and enable them to work towards their recovery goals.
Asket House is the ‘independent unit’ and supports service users with a lower level of need and are further along their journey of recovery, but still require the 24 hour support provided by the multidisciplinary team. This unit is for people who have the ability to cater for themselves and have more significant involvement in decision making and the practicalities of running the unit.
A few quotes from service users/carers about their experience of the service:
- “Once again they went above and beyond to make sure I had help and support exactly when I needed it.”
- “My key worker spent a lot of time tailoring my early warning signs/management plan to my individual needs. She made recommendations but also gave me time and support to come up with my own ideas on things.”
- “Found my whole treatment satisfactory and learnt useful coping skills.”
At the Recovery Centre we have a team of multi-professionals (psychology, nurses, healthy living advisors, occupational therapist and dietitian) who work alongside a team of voluntary sector staff (peer support workers) from Leeds Mind, with recovery workers from Touchstone and care coordinators from Community Links also involved.
The service provides care coordination for all service users within the rehab pathway. They work with service users post discharge for up to 6 months and help them by supporting integration and continuity of care which has improved outcomes such as reduced length of stay and reduced re-admissions.
The team also act as gatekeepers to the service.
This partnership style provides a diverse and holistic approach to peoples care with a strong culture associated to recovery principles and ways of working.
