Cygnet Lodge

2a Sandown Road, Sutton in Ashfield, Nottinghamshire, NG17 4LW

Cygnet Lodge is an 8 bed Neuropsychiatric care and treatment facility for those affected by acquired brain injuries. The service provides a safe and secure place to aid recovery as well as offering those diagnosed with a progressive neurological disease, like Huntington’s Disease, a caring and long term placement to support and help manage the progression of their symptoms.

Cygnet Lodge is registered as a hospital and is designed specifically to provide a clinically led evidence based neuropsychiatric pathway for those individuals presenting with behaviours that challenge. Our focus is to create a therapeutic rich environment which engages our service users and offers them the opportunity to minimise their challenging behaviour and maximise their independence.

We provide a resource intensive dedicated in-house Neuropsychiatry inter-disciplinary team. Our person-centred approach puts the individual at the centre of their treatment and discharge planning. The service offers a wide range of activities and facilities to promote independent function. Positive behaviour goals are focussed on discharge planning to support service users to return to community living – either with support or independently.
