Assisted Living

Hostels

Our hostel programme is a joint venture between Richmond Foundation and Mount Carmel Hospital. It provides long-term, shared accommodation with 24-hour support to people with mental health problems who previously resided at the psychiatric hospital.

About This Service

The men and women living in our five hostels receive 24/7 support to maintain a good level of independence and minimise the need for psychiatric admissions. Through comprehensive assessment and continued care planning, residents are encouraged to work on their abilities, maximise their strengths and maintain an active social life.

We currently run five hostels. The Attard Hostel accommodates 10 women, the Qormi Hostel caters for 12 men, Paola Hotel hosts another 11 men, Mosta Hostel caters for 10 men and Kappara currently accommodates 6 men.

How To Get Referred

Residents are referred to the hostels by the consultant psychiatrists at Mount Carmel Hospital who are responsible for community care. Since the project offers long-term accommodation, new residents can only access the service once a vacant place becomes available.
