Galavale House is home to residents of both sexes who can no longer cope in their own homes or other supported accommodation. The unit has accommodation for 16 residents and 1 respite bed. It is currently split into 13 beds for care of long-term enduring mental illness and 3 beds for the care of functionally ill elderly MHET (Mental Health for the Elderly Team) residents.
Small teams of staff care for specific groups of residents. Each resident has an individualised care programme, which is devised by his or her named nurse from his or her staff team. Most of the bedrooms are single rooms with en-suite bathrooms.
The unique character of each person is acknowledged and respected, irrespective of age, sex, beliefs or culture. We make every effort to meet a range of needs, including emotional, physical, social, spiritual and cultural. We try to promote independence, enhance dignity, maintain privacy and confidentiality. We aim to help our residents to fulfil an acceptable life in a community setting and seek to keep the negative effects of institutional living to a minimum. The atmosphere of the house is a stimulating one in which relationships can grow and a culture of personal responsibility is encouraged.
