Cygnet Lodge Kewstoke – Women’s High Dependency Inpatient Rehabilitation

Gender: Female

Age: 18+

Beds: 12

Set in 16 acres of beautiful grounds overlooking the River Severn, Cygnet Lodge Kewstoke is a high dependency inpatient rehabilitation service for women in Weston-super-Mare.

Supporting up to 12 women, we provide a homely, open and community facing environment with a focus on pre-discharge planning for individuals who may have been in hospital for an extended period of time, are preparing for community life but need further support to move to more independent living. We are able to support women who may have a range of mental health difficulties, including personality disorder or a mild learning disability (as a secondary diagnosis).

We can provide a care pathway within the service from our female low secure, acute and personality disorder wards, or we can act as a step up from community placements that may have broken down. This means service users can test their independence while still being in a safe environment – with the advantage of continuing to have access to a full multi-disciplinary team.

The service has easy access to local amenities and overlooks the River Severn, with views over the Severn to Wales. Situated in the cove of Kewstoke there is a beach within walking distance. The nearest town of Weston-super-Mare is within easy access on public transport, offering shopping, entertainment, fishing facilities as well as an award winning Pier. In addition to help support a wider choice of activities and a recovery focused environment, locally there are areas of outstanding natural beauty such as the Quantock Hills, Cheddar Gorge, Wells Cathedral. Cygnet Lodge Kewstoke is centrally based for the motorway access to ensure continuity of care for family, friends, carers and other agencies to visit.

“I have never in 15 years of being in the system been to a better placement. The wonderful staff have changed my life and my future. I’ve been treated with nothing but respect, compassion and empathy. I thank God I was brought here because my ideas for the future are more positive than they have ever been before.”Ex-Service user, Cygnet Lodge Kewstoke
