Cygnet Lodge Kenton
Cygnet Lodge Kenton, in North-West London, is a female locked rehabilitation service which provides a care pathway for service users who are preparing to step down to community living. We are able to support up to 15 women who may have a range of mental health difficulties, including personality disorder or mild eating disorders.

Cygnet Lodge Kenton is AIMS accredited as ‘Excellent’ with the Royal College of Psychiatrists. The AIMS (Accreditation of Inpatient Mental Health Services) Rehabilitation project is a national scheme developed to ensure best practice is being achieved in in-patient mental health services.

Support

Our service is particularly helpful for women who have been in hospital for some time and who require additional support as they continue along their pathway towards the least restrictive environment possible for them.

Our main focus is to give women the skills and confidence to enable them to live independently in the community. The Occupational Therapy team is key in assuring as many activities as possible are held in the community, helping people re-integrate and prepare most effectively for discharge.

The service has strong links with local community-based services within Kenton and Harrow, with many service users taking part in work experience opportunities and educational and other courses which are run in the area.

We provide a range of individual care packages, which include Occupational Therapy, based on a minimum of 25 hours of meaningful therapy and a range of community activities, every week. The service also offers sessional therapists for Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, Drama and Music Therapy and Yoga. We also provide Dialectical Behavioural Therapy (DBT) for those service users who have a diagnosis of personality disorder.

The team at the service work closely with NHS Home Team to ensure there is a good and effective transition from our service into the community. Most people are able to move on within around 12 months and it is our aim to always identify the date of discharge shortly after a person is admitted.

Facilities and Activities

Cygnet Lodge Kenton offers single, en-suite rooms for all service users. There is social and recreational space within the service, but many activities are community-based.
