Living with an enduring mental health issue is a challenge that few people can relate to. A diagnosis does little to quantify just how difficult performing day to day tasks can be.
Something as mundane as a walk to the shops can be almost crippling for someone with severe anxiety, whereas severe depression can make something as basic as feeding oneself a struggle.
Our team of qualified staff understand the complexities and nuances of these challenging conditions and work with you to overcome barriers and lead fulfilling lives.
Encompass offers two facilities, both with dedicated and experienced teams who provide support for people with enduring mental health needs.
Support is fully assessed and planned with your involvement and regularly reviewed to make sure your needs are being met.
Elsadene is located in Weymouth and is registered with the CQC as a registered care home providing 24 hour support from an experienced team of qualified nurses and support staff. The service aims to enable recovery for people with complex mental health needs.
Even though we are a separate service Elsadene sits within the Dorset Rehabilitation and Recovery service, (Dorset Health University Foundation Trust).
It is recognised that for some individuals with complex and enduring mental health needs there is a requirement for longer term care over many years and Elsadene is able to provide this.
Move on is identified as an outcome where appropriate however it is recognised that for many individuals this is an outcome that requires planning and support over many years due to the nature of their recovery.
Elsadene philosophy is built upon the recovery journey:
Located a short distance from Elsadene, The Coach House provides people with enduring mental health needs the opportunity to live more independently with support to manage their own tenancy. There are two flats which can accommodate up to two people in each.
