Aim of the Service To provide accommodation with 24 hour support, to men with mental health problems. Thus, through comprehensive assessment and continued care planning, residents are encouraged to work upon their abilities and maximize their strengths. Service provided The project is a joint venture between Richmond Foundation and Mount Carmel Hospital
The Hostel: •provides community based long-term accommodation and 24 hour care for eleven males, previously residing at Mount Carmel Hospital;
•offers the necessary support to maintain a good level of independence and minimise the need for psychiatric admissions;
•assists each resident according to his individual capabilities in relation to his daily activities; •helps each resident build and/or maintain a social life.
Method of referral to the Service Residents are referred to the Hostel by the consultant psychiatrists at Mount Carmel Hospital who are responsible for community care. Since the project offers long-term accommodation, the rate of new residents accessing the service when a vacant place becomes available, is very low as the Hostel can only accommodate up to eleven residents.
