A 16-bed locked unit (including 4 self-contained ‘Independent Living’ flats) for adult men who have an acquired / traumatic brain injury and experience complex behavioural, psychiatric and emotional difficulties.
Tavener specialises in the admission, stabilisation and treatment of adult men with complex mental health needs and neuropsychiatric diagnoses.
Our patients develop a framework of skills that allows them to re-integrate with their community. From the moment of admission our team focus on individual goal-planning with each patient, and agree on specific behaviours to develop or reduce.
Our 4 self-contained flats further support patient progress by testing their daily living skills, cognition and behavioural management in a safe environment. Patients can then continue their recovery in one of our community settings (The Berkeley’s), via slow-stream rehab (Althorp), or back in their local area.
