Adult Mental Health Care Service in Lancashire
Oswald House is a specialist residential service providing rehabilitation, care and support to vulnerable women with complex mental health issues. We want every individual we look after to feel as if they are being supported by a family member and to feel completely at home and at ease in our service.
We provide care to women with complex mental health issues.
Our service is a large detached house located in Lancashire, containing nine en-suite bedrooms. As we support women with histories of abuse, it is important to us that each individual feels safe from the very first day they arrive at our service. Once our residents feel comfortable, we work together on their personal recovery journey.
We work closely with each resident to help build their confidence, offering care, support and rehabilitation. At Oswald House we’re committed to supporting our residents to be independent, confident, and resilient. We have a specialist team that provides our residents the opportunity to grow and maintain a healthy level of good physical and mental wellbeing.
We understand that all the people we support have different needs, so alongside their key workers, families, and medical professionals we ensure that the support we provide is bespoke in every detail. Each person has a comprehensive support plan which covers every aspect of their care and support, taking in to account any concerns and issues that may arise and ensuring all needs and requirements are met enabling them to live the very best life possible.
We support women who may have have suffered sexual and/or physical abuse, or who history of substance abuse. Some of our residents stay with us longer-term, others just for a short time before moving on.
To make sure our residents receive consistent care and support, we use a model of care informed by Dialectical Behaviour Therapy (DBT), which is recommended by the National Institute for health and Care Excellence (NICE) for women with particular mental health diagnoses who have a history of self-harming and suicidal behaviour.
By believing in better, we help our residents to achieve more every day and to continue to develop and grow. We want every individual we look after to feel as if they are being supported by a family member and to feel completely at home and at ease in our service.
