Cygnet Grange

39-41 Mason Street, Sutton-in-Ashfield, Nottinghamshire, NG17 4HQ

Cygnet Grange is an 8 bed service providing neuropsychiatric and neurodegenerative rehabilitation for men with mental health difficulties and acquired brain injury.

Based in a residential area of Sutton-in-Ashfield, Cygnet Grange provides a homely environment, supporting service users to maximise their independence and improve their quality of life. Similar to our nearby sister service, Cygnet Lodge, the service is community based, providing excellent access to local amenities, whilst also being within 10 miles of three National Parks, so offering easy access to open spaces. The community-facing element of the service is key in supporting and promoting positive risk taking.

Cygnet Grange has a small, consistent staff team, with high staff to service user ratios. We provide a Total Communication Environment at Cygnet Grange, which informs the ethos and physical environment of the service. Zoned colour ways, advanced picture navigation systems, contrast furniture and other visual cues are used to provide predictability and consistency and reduce confusion for our service users.

We are also able to support admissions for assessment; with a proposed length of stay of 3-6 months, we can work with service users and their teams to determine the individual’s needs and identify a suitable care pathway.

Educational and vocational support is key to service users’ recovery, and programmes are tailor-made for individuals, drawing on a variety of external resources.

Our service user centred approach puts the individual at the centre of their own discharge planning. With the right support and our innovative and proactive rehabilitation environment, our aim is to support service users to return to the community or another suitable care pathway placement.
