Choice and Control

At Davigdor Lodge we are not in the business of banging square pegs into round holes.
We are all different.
An individual support and recovery plan, tailored to your needs and wishes, will be drawn up in collaboration with you and those involved in your care.
We believe that assessment and planning is a two way process. As we learn about you, you must assess us.

Can we be trusted?

Can we deliver what you need?

We will answer your questions. We will be open and honest.

We will come to see you and we will encourage you to visit us.

We recognise that you and those that are close to you are often best placed to know what works well for you.

We believe that the whole process of assessment, planning and the delivery of support and care should be a collaborative venture, enabling you to move forward on the road to more independent living.

Together we will agree specific and realistic goals with a plan that enables you to achieve these. This plan will take into account your wishes and aspirations, what you consider helps you and what doesn't.

The staff team at Davigdor Lodge will work closely with the other professionals involved in your care and support, including your consultant psychiatrist, your care coordinator, CPN and social worker. This is usually accomplished through participation in the care programme approach.

And if we don’t think that the Davigdor Lodge is the right place for you we will be honest enough to say so.
