Residential care and rehabilitation
At The Richardson Partnership for Care, we provide specialist residential care and support for adults with acquired brain injury and separately for adults with learning disabilities. We are also experienced in supporting people with mental health issues, complex needs and behaviours that challenge.
Our support services include:
- Intensive neuro-rehabilitation for adults with an acquired brain injury (ABI) or traumatic brain injury
- Residential care and support for adults with learning disabilities
- Management of associated behaviour that challenges and complex needs
- Rehabilitation for adults with associated mental health issues
- Treatment of physical and mobility difficulties
- Post-acute residential treatment and care following discharge from a brain injury clinic or specialist ABI nursing home
- Person-centred treatment and rehabilitation programmes facilitating a pathway to independence
- Respite, emergency respite and top-up rehabilitation and care
- Short-term intensive rehabilitation
- Slow-stream rehabilitation
- Semi-independent supported living accommodation
- Transitional care
Our person-centred care
Our multi-disciplinary team (MDT) of therapists devise and deliver person-centred care plans to provide individuals with opportunities to realise their potential and increase their independence. In addition, our care staff are trained to carry on and support the work of the therapists.
Each plan is developed following an initial assessment and as rehabilitation progresses, the MDT meets to review treatment requirements and care packages. The level of provision defines charges, and in many cases, as treatment becomes less intensive, costs reduce.
You can meet our MDT and management team here.
Our experience concurs with broader research, showing that an inclusive care package with the right level of professional provision leads to lasting gain, prevents the need for crisis care and reduces long term costs. For example, Turner-Stokes, Paul and Williams  measured functional ability and found that changes in dependency were potentially associated with substantial savings in the cost of ongoing care, especially in high dependency patients.

Positive Behaviour Support
We use Positive Behaviour Support Planning to prevent and reduce challenging behaviour whilst focussing on increased quality of life, inclusion, participation and support of valued social roles.
Each service user has a Positive Behaviour Support Plan. This is an active document, specific to the individual that focuses on their strengths and needs. They are involved as much as possible in creating the plan, which includes details of the things they like or dislike and potential triggers of challenging behaviour.
The Positive Behaviour Support Plan for each individual has the following elements:
- How to keep the person well
- If the person becomes unwell, how to contain precipitant factors
- How to identify a crisis and contain it
- How to get the person out of the crisis
Every member of staff follows the plan so that we work in a consistent and structured way in order to keep the service user as well as possible.
