- Occupational Therapy

They offer a specialist clinical treatment programmes which include one-to-one session where a group session is not appropriate for clinical reasons. The clinical programmes are informed by patient needs and reviewed for individual and group therapies on a 12 week basis.
Mildmay Oaks aims to support patients in a range of community based activities as part of a full treatment programme and to prepare them in moving through their discharge pathway towards a community based placement.
Patients participate in a daily and weekly community group meeting whereby they will agree and plan daily and weekly activities on-site and within the community.
Community activities include:
- Trips to local areas
- Visits to the local village, local café, cinema, theatre and bowling alley
- Community and outreach programmes to attend education providers and placements
We recognise that the people in our care are part of a wider circle of family, friends and networks which are important to them. We aim to work in partnership with them to ensure we provide the right service for their charge but also to support them in their own right as carers.
Family carers are encouraged to develop good contact arrangements with the Ward Manager, Social Worker and Clinical team.
