Residents have often lost close relationships with friends and family as a consequence of their illness, or continue to have difficult relationships with those who are important to them. As healthy relationships form an integral part of good mental health and well being residents are supported to address relationship difficulties with their key-worker and counsellor. This includes deciding on the level of contact and closeness they would like.
Residents are also supported to develop new relationships and friendships during their placement and to consider any difficulties they may have in forming and sustaining relationships.
Almond Villas welcomes resident's families and friends at each of our homes and residents are supported to visit and stay with families and friends whilst they are living with us.
