A step down facility is a place to go – a safe haven – for individuals with complex health needs that are returning to the community from medium or low secure facilities. Such medium and low secure specialist care services exist to provide a range of therapies and psychiatry services for individuals with some kind of mental illness or personality disorder that may make them some level of risk to others.

At Freedom Care we are delighted to provide appropriate facilities and person centered care for such individuals when they are ready to leave their secure services. We liaise closely with the secure unit that they are coming from to ensure that we fully understand the needs of the individual and the different types of care and treatment that they have been receiving.   This liaison continues as needed once the individual has arrived at Freedom Care.

Our specialist care homes are based mostly in Charnwood in Leicestershire. We are situated close to local amenities so that our residents can be given natural opportunities to engage with the local community. Through this they are able to develop their social awareness and communication skills in a positive and fully supported way. Our emphasis is on “doing with” rather than “doing for” the individual.

Our homes aim to provide a welcoming and homely environment for every resident, combined with person centered high quality care. This focus on the individual is a key part of what we do at Freedom Care; as with all our residents, individuals needing step down services are involved with the planning and delivery of the care that they need. We also encourage individuals to personalise their own room for as long as they remain with us, and to be a part of any decision-making process relating to the decor of, and activities in, the communal areas of the home.

Freedom Care is the natural step down facility choice for those with complex health needs.  For further information on this or any of our specialist care servicescontact us today.
